Landmark Booksellers- Franklin, Tennessee

Landmark Booksellers is in a building in Franklin Tennessee that has been around since the early 1800s.  Like most other buildings that old that still stand in Franklin, it served as a hospital after the Battle of Franklin.

NOW, it is a great bookstore!

We stopped by... well, because we usually stop when we see a cool bookstore, and because I had heard that this was a cool place to find some interesting books.

The owners, a very sweet couple who obviously care a lot about books, were extremely friendly and helpful.

In fact, these guys were the perfect balance of being helpful, but not being pushy.  I enjoyed talking to them, but didn't feel pressured to buy anything.

I did pick up a few books though.  They were having a buy one, get one for 50% off or buy two get one free sale.  That's a pretty big deal, especially if you are thinking about bigger purchase.


They had a nice selection of local interest books, among others.  We called a friend who is a fan of Karen Kingsbury, as they had a nice selection of her books, to see if our friend needed any.  One of the owners heard our conversation, and they mentioned that one of her books, "The Bridge" was influenced by their bookstore!  We thought that was pretty cool, so we picked the book up and had the owners sign it, which it seems they have been asked to do many times before!

This is a cool, and unique bookstore- as the bookstore itself has been used as a character in a book (and so have the owners!)!
