Bookstores in the U.S. may be a rare sight in the near future, however this one in North Myrtle Beach has been going strong for decades. Upon entering the shop, you are immediately carried off to a nostalgic place with the scent of old paper and musty walls. Bookends is a clean, yet perfectly cluttered store, where readers can find a nook within the wooden aisles and peruse books on astronomy, language arts, literature, history and much, much more.
