Howlin’ Books is a small, independently owned bookstore in Nashville, Tennessee. Carrying both new and used books, we specialize in music, arts, pop culture, modern literature, poetry, and children’s books.
We share both a physical space and a passion for tangible media with Grimey’s Too, keeping a carefully curated selection of new and used books and magazines in stock. We’re all about the in-person experience, hosting everything from author signings to in-store performances by local and national musical acts in our shared space. Grab a drink from Frothy Monkey’s coffee bar and spend an afternoon in the store with us!
And we welcome your books! We are always looking for gently used books that fit the Howlin' Books vibe. We can offer trade credit or cash; no collection is too large or small for us to look at.

Rise of the Warrior Cop by Radley Balko
In Rise of the Warrior Cop, Balko shows how politicians’ ill-considered policies and relentless declarations of war against vague enemies like crime, drugs, and terror have blurred the distinction between cop and soldier.
