RARA-AVIS: Re: Atlanta bookstore

Ha! When in the area, I stay with my daughter who lives near the intersection of N. Druid Hills and Briarcliff. I always thought Druid Hills would be a great address for a horror writer. The next time I am coming down I will email you and perhaps we can meet for a coffee or drink. To tie this into another thread, my daughter works at DeKalb General Hospital's emergency room, the second busiest in the area. From 3 pm to 11 pm, she is charge of evaluations of anyone coming in presenting possible mental health issues. I mention this in passing, not to suggest it might one day be useful information.

Other bookstores in that area include the Book Nook on N. Druid Hills, which has a large selection of used paperbacks, hardbacks, DVDs, CDs and new and used comics. There's also the Eagle Eye Book Shop at the corner of Clairmont and N. Decatur Road, which has a reasonable selection although they annoy me by shelving mysteries in with the general fiction.
