Some vintage books that just came in. Sharing this as an object lesson why to not store your books 'face down' like this. Gravity pulls page block down, against the binding. Notice the inward curve these spines. #vintagebooks #bookcare #bookstorage

We snapped this outside the Cochran Gallery in LaGrange on Saturday night, inspired by the illumination of the pink water in the fountain from that day's Breast Cancer Survival Rally.

This is a super cool Arnold Palmer book from 1970 that we have had in the shop for some time. We were surprised when it did not sell quickly. Walks through a nine hole course, showing how players of different skill levels should approach it strategically. RIP Mr. Palmer. #arnoldpalmer

A very unique copy of Gone With The Wind, from the ship's library of the USS Trepang, a nuclear submarine that traveled around the globe and was underneath the Perfect Storm. Available in our online store, see link in bio. #gotw #trepang

Blue Train Books is on the Georgia Book Trail!

A Destination Used Bookstore in West Central Georgia

Books and reading are still the best entertainment value going, and Blue Train Books in Hogansville, GA is where you can find a diverse selection of quality low price books (fiction and non-fiction) in a variety of categories. We have treasures for the collectors, obscure non-fiction for the studious, picture books for the kiddies, gifts for the shoppers, and fiction of all kinds for the readers. People love to spend time with our collection of ephemera too.
We pride ourselves on our well organized store, easy browsing, and low prices. Our goal is to make the store a worthwhile drive for someone to visit from out of town and to make the books cheap enough so it’s easy to take a few home.
At Blue Train Books, we try to offer something for everyone, from the casual reader to the dedicated book hound–not to mention collectors of ephemera and sheet music. Fiction lovers will find many books in our store at $5 and under. Mass-market paperbacks and small-format hardcovers are only $2! We have a selection of nice hardcover fiction, with dust jacket covers, in the $5-$7 range, from popular to genre to literary. We are always working on our collection of ephemera and sheet music. (We bag-and-board all of our ephemera and sheet music.) Paperback collectors will also love the prices on our bagged collectible paperbacks. Check out our shelf label shop tour to get the full spectrum.
“Serendipity is the greatest pleasure of browsing, and there is no substitute for being able to hold the physical book in one’s hand. … The joy of finding something that one did not know existed, and that is deeply interesting or connected in a totally unexpected way with one’s intellectual interests of the moment, is one of the great serendipitous rewards of browsing, and one unknown to those who take a purely instrumental view of bookshops, leaving them the moment they discover that they do not have the very book that they want.” —Theordore Dalrymple
