Oakley's Gently Used Books

   Oakley’s Gently Used Books retail store closed on September 18, 2016 after almost 21 years in the same location in downtown Charlottesville, VA. We brought more than 5,000 sci fi/ fantasy books home and continue to add to our carefully curated collection.

Chris still loves the bookselling but not the hours (and the ever increasing burden of 
bookkeeping/tax forms) so Oakley’s will continue to sell books at conventions and through Facebook messaging.

Over 6,000 carefully-selected used books
