We went to a couple of used book stores in downtown Rome.
The First was Paradise Lost: http://www.paradiselostbooks.com/ and on Facebook at
A nice, quiet place, well air conditioned with a minecraft pick hanging in the office, a good supply of Sci-Fiction, decent prices, and a great notice. The owner posts that the store does not keep a list of what you buy and would never report it citing privacy and First Amendment rights. We will stop in again.
The second was Dogwood Antiques and Books. I found a hard to find Delaney book in its very small sci-fiction section. The upstairs section has a good number of history,Southern author, and war books. Downstairs were some oddball items. A few genuine archaeological artifacts among some glaring fakes. A spear point, that if genuine, is a hell of a steal due to it's fabulous edging and face. At $45, I didn't have the money to even ask to handle it. But the most curious were the KKK items for sale: passes, badges, pictures, etc. This salesclerk laboriously records every book sale in a 20 yr old computer system. It took 5 minutes to get checked, it was so-o-o-o slow. The air cond. was on, but not enough. Overall, worth a visit in the autumn.
