The Book Nook

A Union County Family Affair

A hidden gem of North Georgia, Blairsville's own The Book Nook is one of Georgia's oldest continuously operating independent booksellers. Family owned by Jeff Hansen, his wife Dorothy, and their children, Chris and Jamie, The Book Nook has acquired a reputation for searching out the very best titles for each of its sections.

North Georgia Books and more

The Book Nook offers over 8,000 new titles on a broad range of topics. Along with carrying the very newest hardcover and paperback titles hot off the presses, Jeff also takes pride in researching and selecting titles for the shelves that are not just "run-of-the-mill" books available at big-box stores. Interested in Appalachian history and local authors? Want to identify that unusual bird in your back yard or find a nice hike in the Smokies? Want a comforting book for a friend in need? A Christian inspiration? You can find them all next to the fiction, mysteries, biographies, histories, and more that line the clean and spacious shelves of the surprisingly large store.

A Favorite Spot in Blairsville

Settle in on the comfortable couch or the overstuffed chairs to read a few pages of the latest thriller or romance, and listen to young children giggle as they read about the latest exploits of their favorite hero in the impressive children's section. One returning customer recently said, "I'm in bookstores a lot, and this is one of my favorites anywhere!" | Map and Directions
