A larger than expected little place with a great selection of front & backlist and kids. Personally, I didn't see any used books. They also have magazines, which is a little rare for an indie store. Really enjoyed it.

This is always a must-stop for me whenever I'm back visiting the area. This past visit was the first time taking my son there and picking from their great kids book selection. Highly recommend!

Excellent selection that is curated with care. You'll find something here that you didn't expect and walk away happy. A great space to browse and explore.

A nice quaint place. The staff is quite helpful and it feels nice to visit. The student discount is also highly appreciated, as well as the free bookmark!

Found this book shop in Durham. Loved the ambiance in the shop. Reminds me of the bookstores that you used to find in small towns. Nice selection for the size, they are good friendly as well. Wish I had a book store like this where I live.

A great local bookstore! I was impressed with the selection. Lots of times I’ll go into smaller, local stores and they won’t have the books I’m looking for, but this store had everything I wanted. Lots of selection both popular and more unique picks.

Found this place and went in on a whim, and so glad I did! Great society/ politics, poetry and fiction selection that is way outside the typical selection. Reasonable prices and teacher discount. Thank you!

Support local. You can grab what you need and they call you once you request a book. Love their local bookshop. It has all the genres.

A Durham staple, the Regulator always has great books on hand, whether you're seeking picture books (for a kid or for you - they don't judge), poetry, or more popular fare. It is a wonderful resource for book clubs, schools, and books of local interest.

Very dangerous to my budget as they always have so many books I'd like to read!

I love the Regulator Book Shop and wish I lived closer to it. It is a store for people who love books and aren't looking for the extra stuff crammed into the big box book stores.
