Wall Street Books has been a part of downtown Waynesville for the last twenty-eight years. In September of 2015, the bookstore changed hands and in 2022, they moved to a new cozier building. Thankfully it was right next door to the old one! (Moving all those books was hard work!) 


Whether you are a local or just visiting, Greg and Bonnie Owens, are always excited to welcome you! Bonnie, a Waynesville native, and Greg, a long time resident and Haywood County Public School teacher, are avid book lovers and always enjoy helping customers find their next great read. Greg will pretty much read anything and everything but he really loves Stephen King, John Hart and Louis L'amour while Bonnie likes to dive into her southern roots and read fiction set right here in the mountains. Greg and Bonnie have 3 remarkable children, Eli, Olivia and Isaac. 


Come by and browse our extensive collection, make yourself at home in our comfy bright green couch, "Ms. Virginia", and grab a unique ice-cold soda made right here in Waynesville NC!

“Books to the ceiling, Books to the sky, My pile of books is a mile high. How I love them! How I need them! I’ll have a long beard by the time I read them.”

~Arnold Lobel

“Until I feared I would lose it, I never loved to read. One does not love breathing.”

~Harper Lee
