Charlottesville, VA / 2ndactbooks.com

We are on the historic Charlottesville downtown mall, across from the Paramount Theater, at the location of the former Read it Again, Sam. We carry the same categories of second-hand books that previous owner Dave Taylor stocked, although our specialty is a large children's and YA section. For those familiar with Dave’s store, you will be glad to see some familiar faces. Michael McGee, actor and teacher, is here to help with all genres. If you’ve been visiting for more than a decade, you’ll see that Michele Allen (with ten years’ experience in the book business) has returned. But wait –there’s more. Mike K Johnson, musician and IT geek, is our sci-fi specialist.
