It could be the only real bookstore in Savannah. . . it surely is the only one we could fine. The biography and history sections are particularly well stocked and chosen. Very pleasant and refreshing to visit a real book store like this.

Great bookstore! I'm from Portland, home to Powell's Books, so a bookstore has to be very special to catch my eye. E. Shaver is the perfect place to browse. They have a great selection of everything: fiction, new releases, history, local, children's, cooking & gardening....More
