Best Independent Bookstore (Used)


Rhino is what book lovers picture in their minds when they hear the phrase "used bookstore." A large, slightly eccentric space, its multiple rooms packed with bookshelves covering every conceivable topic, furnished with Persian rugs and sofas for comfortable reading. Owner Fred Koller edits the selection carefully, and employees are adept at offering recommendations. The store strikes a balance between intellectual and fun: A display up front offers a fascinating selection of trashy '50s pulp novels. Rhino isn't as well-trafficked as it might be, due to its two slightly counterintuitive locations, one on Granny White next to the Copper Kettle, one sandwiched between thrift stores and junk shops on Charlotte Avenue. But it's worth the trip. Emily Bartlett Hines
