About

Books by Design is a reading boutique located in downtown Villa Rica, Georgia. Brimming with southern hospitality and infused with a vintage retro-inspired aesthetic, Books by Design specializes in used book trade-ins and tutoring services. We’re always available to offer a book recommendation or we’d love to have you just stop in to chat. It is our hope to gradually reintroduce West Georgia to the joy of reading one recycled book at a time!

The Books
Book by Design
hopes to become Villa Rica’s favorite place to trade-in and buy gently used books. We carry a variety of authors and genres, including popular fiction, mystery & suspense, adventure, romance, Christian fiction and lots of children’s books. Numerous non-fiction titles will also be available. With over 8,000 books in inventory, you’re sure to find plenty of titles to keep your reading list long, and if you’re having trouble deciding–just ask us for a recommendation! That’s what we’re here for.

If you’re looking to trade-in your used books, you’ve come to the right place! Just bring your collection into the Books by Design shop, and we’ll give you a store credit. We don’t guarantee a certain value for your trade-ins; we base the amount of credit on the age, condition, and popularity of the titles you bring in–we’ll try our best to be generous though! After you shop around, we’ll apply UP TO 50% of your store credit to your new purchase… that means if you have enough credit, you pay just 50% of the new purchase in cash, check, or card. If you have any additional credit left over, you’re welcome to use it again another day! It’s that simple… just remember there’s a 10 book trade-in limit. Up to 10 books AND 10 children’s books per day.

The Tutoring
Books by Design owner, Tiffany Powers, offers tutoring services in MATH for students needing help in first grade all the way through Coordinate Algebra. Tutoring will take place in the Books by Design office in a one-on-one setting. A variety of proven learning strategies will be implemented to help your student succeed in school.
