Brickbat Books!

This just in: There’s a new bookstore in South Philly! Working in the publishing industry, I’m always keeping my eye out for new places to browse, and I was walking up 4th this weekend, and there was a brightly-lit store, actually opened past 5 p.m. There were 4 or 5 people, hard at work on Saturday night, putting in bookshelves. The new Brickbat Books (709 S. Fourth St.) seems like it may be opened already, what with the only web searches on it leading to a musical performance that took place there on Sunday night. I didn’t see an official site, but it seems they are a sister store to Big Jar Books (55 N. Second St.). I will check it out on my way home for more details. I sure am excited to see a non-chain in my neighborhood!

    Brickbat Books is now open! Every day from 11 to 7. We are indeed the sister store to Big Jar Books. Thanks for the mention!
