About Us


Joy of Books opened for business on April 1, 2010 and is owned and operated by Joye McGinnis and her husband Chuck Christy in the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina.


We opened Joy of Books because we saw a need for a quality used bookstore in Hendersonville and knew that a bookstore would be an asset to the community. We sell all types of used books including; classics, local history, southern fiction, health & fitness, children's, etc., as well as a large popular fiction section. 


Joy of Books also features local authors and has a large selection of local interest books including birding, hiking and biking books. 


We are continually adding new merchandise to the store.  Besides books, we also sell new and pre-enjoyed cd's and DVD's and other gift items. 


We are located at 242 North Main Street, Hendersonville, NC 28792, phone 828-551-7321.




We are dedicated to providing the best service with a personal touch.
