Upon moving to Hartsville thirty-nine years ago, I quickly found Burry Bookstore. Charlie Burry was always so happy to see his customers and to help them find what they were looking for. Now, his daughter, Emily, continues to keep Burry's the same happy, friendly store it has always been. But, she has also kept up with changing times by offering online shopping, luncheons with authors and generally keeping us all up to date. The entire staff is so friendly, helpful and knowledgeable - my shopping experience is always a pleasure. Burry's continues to be a Hartsville treasure!
Online only retailers are exploiting a massive tax loophole that puts small brick-and-mortar businesses at a significant disadvantage, leaves individual consumers at risk, and paves the way for new taxes!
Spanish moss reaches out from dark trees on lonely roads, the Great Dismal Swamp shelters unknown beasts and near-beasts, the coastline is marked with thousands of hidden inlets where pirate ships buried treasures and German U-boats prowled. With all this and so much more, is it any wonder that the Carolinas, North and South, are filled with places and people that can only be called weird? And in our book, that’s a compliment.
Not everything about the Carolinas is strange. Pepsi-Cola was invented here, and it’s where Krispy Kremes first hit it big. Babe Ruth batted his first professional home run in Fayetteville, and the first English baby born in America debuted on Roanoke Island. Unfortunately, she came to a sad end, as did her whole “Lost Colony.” Just one of the many Carolina mysteries you can try your hand at solving.
To round up the strangeness of these states, Roger Manley, a native son of the South and a man with a keen eye for the offbeat, jumped into his Weirdmobile and scoured the two Carolinas. Follow him now on your own ride into the unknown. Listen for the eerie sounds that come from the bottomless pits of Magnolia. Search for hidden emeralds in Hiddenite, North Carolina. Roll out the welcome wagon for some extraterrestrials at the UFO Welcome Center in Bowman, but watch out for parts of a hidden H-bomb lurking somewhere beneath the surface in Wayne County. Sneak up on Monkey Island, where the humans are in cages and the monkeys run free! Catch the chain-saw art in Bynum, but don’t get caught by the devil on his Tramping Grounds in either Carolina! Ride a horse and chow down some vittles at a bona fide Old West town in Iredell County. Or take in Oyotunji, an authentic African village, except that it’s in Sheldon, South Carolina. And don’t forget to stop by and say hello to Darrel the Donut, U.N.C.–Greensboro’s library mascot.
The latest entry in the best-selling Weird U.S. series, Weird Carolinas is packed with all the things other guidebooks don’t tell you. So begin your own weird journey now. We promise it’s a journey you’ll never forget.
Todd Burpo tells the true story of his four-year-old son Colton, who, during emergency surgery, slips from consciousness and enters heaven. The disarmingly simple message is heaven is a real place, Jesus really loves children, and there is a coming last battle.
Getting to Heaven - Don Piper
Since publishing his inspirational bestseller in 2004, Don Piper has traveled the world spreading his message of faith-certain faith-in the promise of Heaven. In Heaven is Real, Piper shared how life's trials can be turned into spiritual lessons, when we are open to the certainty of God's grace and love.
Now, in his first new book in four years, Getting to Heaven, Piper draws on his own firsthand experiences with the joys of Heaven-as well as the lessons found in the Gospel-to offer a set of "departing instructions," helping readers face the inevitable battles ahead, prepare for eternal life, and, starting today, live a happy, fulfilling, purposeful life on Earth while preparing for the glories of Heaven.
In the first comprehensive history of South Carolina published in nearly fifty years, Walter Edgar presents a sweeping narrative of a state with an illustrious, sometimes infamous, past. He describes in very human terms 475 years of recorded history in the Palmetto State, including the experiences of all South Carolinians - rich and poor; male and female; those with roots in Africa and in Europe as well as Native Americans. In an eminently readable presentation, Edgar uses letters, diaries, and other writings to let voices from the past take part in telling the state's fascinating story.
The Money Class: Learn to Create Your New American Dream
What does it take to create your New American Dream? Suze Orman, the woman millions of Americans have turned to for financial advice, says it's time for a serious reconsideration of the American Dream--what promise it still holds, what aspects are in need of revision, and how it must be refashioned to fit our lives so that we can once again have faith that our hard work will pay off and that a secure and hopeful future is within our reach. In nine electrifying chapters,
Orman delivers a master class on personal finance for this pivotal moment in time. She addresses every aspect of the American Dream--home, family, career, retirement. She teaches us that in order to create lasting security we must learn to stand in our truth. We must recognize, embrace, and be honest about what is real for us today and allow that understanding to inform the choices we make. The New American Dream is not the things we accumulate, says Orman, but the confidence that comes from knowing that which we've worked so hard for cannot be taken away from us.
Orman teaches us how to take control over our present--right here, right now--in order to build the future of our dreams. Whether navigating the complicated mix of money and family, offering the most comprehensive retirement resource available today, or delivering a bracing dose of reality when it comes to recalibrating our expectations and our goals,
Orman educates us with her signature no-nonsense approach and laser-like clarity. She empowers us to live a life of integrity and honesty that will create an enduring legacy for future generations--a New American Dream that lies in truth, security, financial freedom, and peace of mind.

For all of you Jodi Picoult fans - the wait is over. Sing You Home was released yesterday!
"Every life has a soundtrack. "All you have to do is listen.
Music has set the tone for most of Zoe Baxter's life. There's the melody that reminds her of the summer she spent rubbing baby oil on her stomach in pursuit of the perfect tan. A dance beat that makes her think of using a fake ID to slip into a nightclub. A dirge that marked the years she spent trying to get pregnant.
For better or for worse, music is the language of memory. It is also the language of love.
In the aftermath of a series of personal tragedies, Zoe throws herself into her career as a music therapist. When an unexpected friendship slowly blossoms into love, she makes plans for a new life, but to her shock and inevitable rage, some people--even those she loves and trusts most--don't want that to happen.
Sing You Home is about identity, love, marriage, and parenthood. It's about people wanting to do the right thing for the greater good, even as they work to fulfill their own personal desires and dreams. And it's about what happens when the outside world brutally calls into question the very thing closest to our hearts: family.
What's one of the busiest sections in our store? The Childrens Area! Not only do our youngest customers enjoy coming in and looking at books, they have a fun time at our play tables while mom and dad are browsing.
Here's what Lori Urbaniak-Griggs and her children think:
"My children and I love shopping at Burry Book Store. My son once said, "the people there are so nice and helpful...you just can't find that service everywhere!" I have to agree with him. The employees are always willing to help us find what we're looking for and we never go away empty handed!"
