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.

Awesome place. 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.

Good bookstore with nice sections; no used books. The staff wasn’t overly welcoming. They seem to have some very dense sections with a plethora of books about specific items, and then others none at all. The kids section was good.

The Regulator Bookstore is located in Durham, NC. My dear brother-in-law recommended it. It has every book in the world in it; a true library. I visited it a week ago and purchased some interesting and quaint finds. Highly recommend it in your travels.

A good bookstore ..like any bookstore ..Doesn't have used books and old books which I always look for at any bookstore .. as books need to have multiple lives

Extensive section on race. Got a free membership and discount as a teacher. Not crowded and got help finding the book I wanted. Check out my work:. bbi4rr. org. We need help!
