Your Local Downtown Greenville Bookstore​

Welcome to M.Judson Booksellers, downtown Greenville’s premier independent local bookstore. We’re a thriving literary hub, coming to you from the historic courthouse building in the middle of beautiful downtown Greenville, SC. Specializing in cookbooks, Southern lit, and kids’ books of every kind, we also offer bestsellers, new releases, fun and funky goods, and gifts from South Carolina and beyond. Our events, such as Lunch & Lit and Trivia Night, are various and spectacularly thoughtful, and our bookclubs have cult followings. We also have a unique book subscription service “The Letterbox” that has themed selections (think Beach Reads, Crime, and Fantasy) as well as “My Letterbox” which we customize to your specific reading style and interests. The Letterbox delivers a surprise book, bookish gift, and personal note to your mailbox each week or month, whatever your preferred schedule.
