Avid Bookshop opened its second location in fall of 2016 in the heart of the Five Points neighborhood in Athens, Georgia. The store is slightly larger than our original shop on Prince, and we have a higher percentage of gift items for sale including journals, calendars, pens, pencils, stationery, stickers, calendars, planners, and so much more. 


  • Spots in front of the shop are available for visits to Avid Bookshop, J. Christopher's, Condor Chocolates, and Donna Chang's. They tend to open up after 1:00 PM.

  • Park on Milledge Circle after 5pm between the permit signs during weekdays. Unlimited parking on weekends. You'll be a block from the shop and can walk around the back of the shop through the apartment tenant parking lot.

  • Park at the fire station for free--public parking for up to 2 hours (then walk to any Five Point shops you want!)
