My favorite choice for the best bookstore in Knoxville would have to go to McKay Used Books, CDs, Movies and More. While I’ve only shopped at the enormous Knoxville location, there are two other stores in Nashville and Chattanooga, but no matter which store you go to — and even if you go to the same one again — your experience will always be different. That’s because of the used books, CDs and more sold here. The sprawling selection is ever-changing depending on what customers trade in, so it’s like a treasure hunt every time you walk through the doors. You can find items from art books, textbooks, romance novels and mysteries to rare VHS tapes, DVDs and video games and video game systems. Make sure to bring in anything you’re ready to part with — the real deal is getting store credit instead of cash.
