For introverts, such as myself, nothing beats reading a good book. However, buying things from places such as Barnes and Noble or Books a Million can be quite costly, and they are limited to whatever books are popular at the moment.
A few years ago, my mom and I discovered McKay Books in Chattanooga, Tennessee. It is a two-story giant warehouse full of used books that people do not read anymore. It is more than books as there are used DVDs, audio books, CD's, records and video games that one can purchase. Since many young adults with Aspergers that I meet are into comic books and graphic novels, McKay Books has a whole section dedicated to superhero and anime fans.
One never knows what they will find on a trip to McKay Books. For example, I once saw a book printed in the 1970's about the history of Lookout Mountain, which stretches from northeast Alabama to Chattanooga. I also enjoy finding books from Arcadia Publishing’s Images of America series.
Prices are reasonable and old items can be traded in for store credit. Gift cards are also available for purchase. I used both a gift card and in-store credit during my visit to McKay Books this past weekend and got several books for a low price.
