Welcome to My Sister's Books
An Independent Book Store Success Story
“Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers.” -- Charles W. Eliot
My Sister’s Books, which opened in 2002, is located in one of the country’s oldest resort communities – Pawleys Island, SC. The store is the realization of a dream for sisters Fran Clarkson and Bess Long. After both completed careers in the U.S. Navy, they founded this used paperback and books on CD bookstore that caters to locals and visitors alike.
My Sister’s Books houses more than 43,000 titles in a variety of categories: romance, mystery, classics, children’s books, biographies and other non-fiction. If you’re looking for works by local and regional authors, you’ll find a great selection of those as well.
At My Sister’s Books, you can purchase or trade your gently-read paperbacks and audio books for the next title on your list. Our staff prides themselves on being able to make recommendations, seek out hard-to-find titles, and suggest other authors based on your preferred genre.
Many reading groups consider My Sister’s Books their headquarters for picking up reasonably-priced copies of their scheduled reads. If you’re looking for reading group suggestions, please visit! If you want the latest releases of new books, just click on ORDER NOW at the top of this page.
