  • As a local in the Asheville area, Malaprops is one of the bookstores I support. The staff is knowledgeable, and they have very interesting choices of slightly off the beaten track items.  more »

  • Came here to try the Blind Date shelf - wasn't disappointed! Lots of good selections/sections including a large children's section. Didn't think the books were overpriced - priced what the book itself was priced, not above. Will definitely come back when I'm in the area.
  • This place is great. It has lots of staff recommendations, and a Blind Date shelf where you pick a hidden book based on keywords that appeal to you. I bought one and it fit my tastes perfectly. They do a really good job with these (They also said I could bring it back if I already had a copy or really didn't like it).
  • One of The best bookstores I've been to. With so many written staff picks, autographed books, selection of read-worthy stuff, and knowledgeable staff, passion for books just oozes out and the real bookstore experience is still alive in America. Thank you Malaprops! And we all need to support more local businesses!
  • A sophisticated aura, with literary references on the menu. This was a very cool place, indeed. Delicious and happening, I want to go back!!
  • SUPER SUPER cute bookstore!! A little expensive for pricing but it's local so it's understandable. Promise you will love it.

Where to stay in Asheville

To take advantage of the best Asheville has to offer without breaking the bank, stay at one of the city's small motels, many of which offer free breakfast buffets and plenty of secure parking. Asheville's historical district contains most of the city's bed and breakfasts, allowing you to stay within a short walk of downtown shopping, dining, and entertainment. The area also boasts numerous budget-friendly hostels, offering inexpensive private rooms for backpackers. For something completely different, rent an eco-friendly cabin in a wooded area just a short drive from the city.
