One of the Uber drivers I had recommended stopping at Bookman Bookwoman while I was walking around town. What a great find! They have a great selection of fiction and non fiction. You can find anything from a children's book to a James Patterson novel...More

After breakfast across the street at The pancake pantry we wondered over to BookMan BookWoman. What a treat. Classics old and new. Bound sets of encyclopedias, such an inviting atmosphere and excellent service. I purchased several books by Elizabeth Strout, can't wait to visit again.

I mean lots of them. Rows, stacks, boxes, little nooks and crannies filled with books. It was a dream for these two bibliophiles. My only compliant was the person who checked us out. I will give her the benefit of a doubt, but she wasn't...More

I love bookstores and try to visit independent or used bookstores on our vacations. While in Nashville, we ate at the Pancake Pantry, and BookMan BookWoman was nearby. My family enjoyed perusing the piles and investigating the twists and turns of the store. I found...More

This store has a lot of books in a small space. While you can find some good buys it is very difficult to spend the time going through the shelves as they are very crowded.
