Books — it’s in our name. 

“Books are the mirrors of the soul.” — Virginia Woolf

Cicada Books & Coffee features an extensive collection of secondhand general interest books (hardcovers $8, paperbacks $5 and mass-market paperbacks $4) as well as a smaller, staff-curated selection of new titles — many of which focus on Appalachia and LGBTQ+ themes. We also have a section of consigned books from local authors. 

Want to share your love of books with others? We have several book clubs you can join! 

Need to make room for new-to-you books on your shelf? We accept book donations are part of our Book Buyback the first week of every month. 

Can’t make it in but would still like to make a purchase? Shop Bookshop here and have books delivered to your door while still supporting us.

If you’re looking for a specific title and would like us to take a look for you, please fill out the form below, and we’ll do our best to fulfill your request!
