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.
