When it comes to reading, most people either love it or hate it. Summer is the time when those who love a good read have the chance to pick up a new title to bring with them on vacation. At Books By The Pound, a bookstore near Atlanta, book lovers might want to pop in for a few novels. The shop is going out of business, and everything is on discount.

You'll find Books By The Pound in Lawrenceville, Georgia. There are more than 200,000 used books in this reader's heaven that's about half the size of a football field. The name is exactly what this bookstore is about — selling books by the pound.

After being open since 2017, the shop has decided to close its doors. The business posted the news to their Facebook page, announcing the closeout sale and the available discounts.

They'll be reopening for the sale starting Friday, June 12 through Saturday, June 20, from noon to 8 p.m.

Customers will be given a percentage off of their purchase, depending on how many pounds the books come out to. The more you buy, the larger the discount.

According to the Gwinnett Daily Post, "customers can buy their first three pounds of books for $3.99 a pound, the second five pounds for $2.99 a pound, and everything after that for $1.99 a pound."

The sale is set up in tiers, offering between 25% and 50% off depending on how much you decide to pick up.

After the announcement of the closing, many customers commented expressing their sadness, as well as giving thanks for the memories and fun this store provided.

One user stated, "So sorry to learn of this. I've enjoyed every visit to and purchase from your store - thank you for serving our community!"

Another user added, "I'm so very sad to see this. I've been shopping with you guys for a little over 2 years. By far my favorite place to buy books."

For the loyal customers that have any loyalty points that they need to use up, Books By The Pound will be honoring those as well.

Whether this was your favorite bookshop or you've never been, this is your chance to check Books By The Pound out one last time.
