Description: We were founded in 1995 as Boomer’s Books by Lee and Jim Breeden, and renamed Blue Bicycle Books in April 2007 when local writer longtime employee Jonathan Sanchez bought the store with his wife Lauren.

We have about 10 feet of storefront on King Street, belying a much longer (and a little wider) space, 172 feet from Graphic Design to the dollar books in the back. We have 50,000 volumes, including the most complete collection anywhere of used, rare and new Charleston material. Other popular sections include history, architecture, military history, Civil War, eastern religion, science, philosophy, gardening, poetry, hardback classics and literary fiction.

As Boomer’s and as the Blue Bike, we’ve been voted Charleston’s best used book store five years running.
