3. I Recommend a New Novel
- Friday, September 1, 2017
They read us like a book. When I was growing up, The Book Shelf was about where the northwest corner of the Kroger in Poplar Plaza is now.

4. Novel Evokes Memories of Davis-Kidd, With a Few Updates
- Thursday, August 17, 2017
If you turn your head and squint your eyes just right, you can almost believe that Davis-Kidd Booksellers is back.
That beloved Memphis institution closed in 2011 after more than 25 years in operation. The store was soon renamed the Booksellers at Laurelwood, but while it had the same location and the same employees, it wasn’t quite the same as its predecessor. Then, after barely six years in business, that store also closed down in February, leaving a gaping hole in the city for readers who still liked to visit bookstores.

7. Turning the Page
- Saturday, January 28, 2017
When a bookstore decides to close its doors for good, the moment isn't always so immediate or possessive of the clean finality that comes with shutting a book at the end of the story.
In the case of The Booksellers at Laurelwood, it is a long goodbye. These final weeks of a liquidation sale that will stretch into February – the culmination of a decision that the store’s finances have become untenable – have meant the slow unwinding of a 32-year-old bookstore that’s closing up shop the same way you fall asleep, fall in love, get old – gradually, then all of a sudden.
8. In Business for 140 Years, Burke’s Book Store is Making a Comeback
- Friday, August 21, 2015
Independent bookstores tend to mean something special to lovers of the printed word. They aren’t just places of commerce, even for their owners, but a sanctuary for something in danger of slipping away in an increasingly digital world.
- Thursday, July 28, 2011
As the market for brick-and-mortar bookstores lessens, the space that once housed big-box retailers could very well be snatched up faster than a paperback at a liquidation sale.
It was 40 years ago that the first Borders opened its doors in Ann Arbor, Mich., as one of the originators of the big-box bookseller concept. But much to local bookworms’ dismay, Borders will now be known as yet another bookseller to be defeated by the ever-increasing eReader revolution.
