Reston's Used Book Shop

Are you a book lover? Then Reston is a good place for you. Lake Anne Plaza is home to one of the most beloved used book stores in Northern Virginia--Reston's Used Book Shop, the place "Where Books and People Meet." And the people who frequent this mom-and-pop gem, well they're the FRUBs (friends of Reston's Used Book Shop). FRUBS don't just buy books. FRUBS love the store, drop in a lot, and sometimes contribute ideas or a little time.

Reston's Used Book Shop was founded in 1978 by Restonians Sue Schram and Sue Wensell (known as "the Sues"). In 1999, Bud and Susan Burwell took the reigns and continued the community tradition inspired by the original owners. Bud and Susan have created a haven for book lovers of all ages. The store includes a literary living room in the shop where you can snuggle with a cup of coffee or attend one of the stores frequent lectures or events. You can even stop by for an afternoon of bluegrass music once a month.

Reston's Used Book Shop is located on Lake Anne Plaza in Reston, VA. You never know who you will see or meet when you browsing through the immense selection of books, but you will always have a great time hanging out.
