Book Reflection’s Bookstore Spotlight
Dollar Book Swap
1723 Webster Street
Business Hours: Friday and Saturday’s 10 to 6
This months “Bookstore Spotlight” is going to the Dollar Book Swap located in Dayton, Ohio. If you are ever in the Dayton area on a weekend this is the place to check out! The name of the store says it all. Everything. in. the. store. is. one. dollar.
Yes, you read that right – one dollar. Hardbacks, paperbacks, children’s books, audio books, movies, and more all just ONE DOLLAR! They also have bins full of children’s picture books in which you can fill an entire grocery bag full for just ten dollars. A few weeks ago I got seventy-three picture books in one of those bags for my children’s book advent calendar to count down to Christmas.
The only “downside” to getting books so cheap is that they’re not organized like your regular used bookstore. They have definitely gotten better over the last year or so, but it still requires some digging through stacks and stacks of books. But, if you’re a book lover like myself you’ll quite enjoy the hunt for the perfect treasure!
This business is ran by a great family. I truly believe they care about their community, and show it through their generosity. If you shop here you’re supporting a great community, family, and small business.
I hope you’ll check it out!
