is a mixed-use development located in midtown Raleigh, NC that includes stores, restaurants, entertainment, commercial offices, residential living and a continuing care retirement community. The Commons area frequently features live concerts, festivals, and a farmers’ market. It’s a fabulous destination if for no other reason than a great bookstore – Quail Ridge Books
– A new location for a store that is a mecca for avid readers that count on a discerning selection of books across the spectrum. You can count on a staff that knows its books. My latest visit exceeded any book budget I may have gone in with. There was my list and then the books recommended to me by a staffer that said, “If you like this author, you will like…….” I love Quail Ridge Books!
I’d also recommend a restaurant, Coquette, a few blocks away that tops off a wonderful bookstore experience. In great weather, the floor to ceiling doors are opened and the view of the towering downtown buildings loom on the horizon. With a bag of books at my feet, the view, and menu, I am transported to a cosmopolitan state of mind not to be missed.
