After closing due to a fire in March of 2016, The Book Thing reopened in October of 2017 and is now doing better than ever.
This place is actually a warehouse that was converted into a massive book "store." Well, it's technically not even a store because you don't ever spend a cent on the books.
That's right. This place runs entirely on donations and they arrive in the thousands each and every week.
Open every Saturday and Sunday from 9am to 5pm, you can arrive early and read or bring a big box to replenish your bookshelf at home!
If you're interested in donating books, you can do so 24/7 at the book drop located outside of the warehouse.
