At As the Page Turns, we have a wonderful selection of new and used paperback and hardback books, including an excellent selection by local and Southern authors. We also carry audio books on CD, movies on DVD, handcrafted items, greeting cards, and gifts. If you're looking for a specific title, give us a call. If we don't have what you're looking for, we'll be glad to order it for you, or keep an eye out and let you know if it comes in. We're also glad to recommend books and authors if you need something new to read but aren't sure quite what you want.
