Bookseller Review: McIntire Rd. Book Exchange

McIntire Road Book Exchange
611 McIntire Rd.
Charlottesville, VA

The McIntire Road Book Exchange is a walk-in bin located at the far end of the Recycling Center. A place to donate old books, and find new (old) ones. 

What we like: There is always the chance of making an excellent find as the contents of the bin are constantly changing. You really have to dig though -- through stuffed cardboard boxes, stacks on the floor, and haphazard shelving -- and that makes it all the more exciting.

What we don't like: It seems to be heavy on medical reference books and textbooks. 

Would we go again? Definitely. Everyday that people go there to drop off their recycling means the possibility of new books being added to the collection. We try and go every couple of weeks to see what is new.
