Tall Tales Books was founded in August 1979. We have always been in the Toco Hills shopping center in Atlanta, near Emory University and the CDC.


We are a full-service, independent, new, general interest bookstore. We special order books every single weekday, do out-of-print searches, and wrap presents at lightning speed.


Customer service is our middle name (unwieldy, but true). We fancy ourselves book whisperers, one and all. In college, we majored in book recommendations. We're best in person. Come check us out!
