Asylum Books

1122-B S. Lamar, 512/441-9445
The owners named their store Asylum because they consider bookstores havens, and because their friends thought they were crazy to open one. More nook than madhouse, Asylum specializes in modern literature, philosophy, military history, and rare books. The plush carpeting and cozy chairs combined with their quirky Sunday specials (20% off brown books?!), makes this a great place to while away a weekend.
