I've been busy working on a website for my MFA field study project, and in doing research for it, I happened to stop by Rhino Booksellers. A used bookstore with two locations in Nashville, Rhino is owned by Fred Koller, a songwriter and author. Fred, who has penned songs for Loretta Lynn, Lorrie Morgan, Michael Murphy, Leon Russell and others, opened the store by Lipscomb University about five years ago, and the one on Charlotte Pike (above) about two years ago. He named the stores Rhino Booksellers because the rhino is in danger of extinction as are, he thinks, books. In this electronic and tech-savvy age, many people have switched to audio and electronic books.
I really liked both stores. Like most used bookstores, they are chockfull of books. However, they are both very comfortable and inviting. The Charlotte Pike store has a number of first editions and signed books that are collectors' editions.
I'm reading a lot of nonfiction for class right now since it's my genre of choice.
What is the last book you've read?
