The Golden Fig is a gift to Durham. Spending time in this bookshop feels like a respite from the outside world, and I always feel like a sated treasure hunter when I leave with my new-to-me books. In less vague terms, the prices are beyond fair, the used books are always in pristine condition, the selection is delicious and inspiring, and David, the owner, is a delight. You should visit. :)

Great little bookstore with a wide selection of new and used books. They take covid precautions seriously which is much appreciated!

Staff was helpful, but this is the highest priced store I have seen for used books. That said, they did have some scifi stuff I can't find any place else.

The shop is small but there is a wide selection of books at a great price. I found many of the books I had on my list and then some. The space is very nice and well organized. Staff was helpful and accommodating. I will definitely return for more books in the future.

Love the curated selection available at this store. There is something for every type of reader available. Having something particular in mind or not able to find a particular selection? They can order any book to the store as well.

Small, cute book store. I sold some of my books and got more money than I expected.

Smaller shop with a tasteful selection of new and used books, both recently published and classics, neatly displayed. A rack of fun greeting cards from a local printer. Helpful service.

A smallish but smartly curated selection of books of all genres, mostly secondhand. This is a bookstore for book lovers, erring against mass-market fiction and nonfiction in favor of the more thoughtful and thought-provoking. They're also happy to take special orders.
