You must
love books.

Welcome to M. Judson Booksellers. We’re an independent literary hub, coming to you from the historic courthouse building right in the middle of thriving 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 goodies from South Carolina and beyond. Our events are various and spectacularly thoughtful, our bookclubs have cult followings, and if you live far away, our book subscription service The Letterbox will deliver a little bit of M. Judson right to your door.

Dear Friends,

We are so grateful for this community right now— those of you who’ve called to order books and gift cards, stopped in to shop with us, or given us a shout-out on social media have all helped to make this strange, difficult time a little easier. We’re doing okay. We’re concerned about our staff and their families, and we’re trying to make the right decisions. 

We’re also trying to get creative. There’s nothing we love so much as a challenge, and we believe books are part of how we can all make it through social distancing without become distant in our hearts and minds. 

Starting Thursday March 19, we’ll be offering curbside service from 10am-5pm. Call us at 864-603-2412. We’ll get you what you need, offer recommendations if you’re not sure, ring you up and run your package to your car. We have a dedicated parking space at the back of our building, just for you.

We’re also offering free shipping on any purchase. We have gift cards for later purchases. We encourage everyone to head over to for all your online book needs. You can create an account HERE and as of today, 30% of that sale comes right back to M. Judson, and your books get shipped right to your door. 

For tomorrow, the store will open from 10am-5pm. Please check daily for updates— we’ll keep you posted via Instagram, Facebook and our website.

Big love,
M. Judson Booksellers
