The Book Lady Bookstore - New and Used Books

Horton's Books and Gifts is the oldest book store in Georgia and the oldest business in Carrollton. The store opened in 1892 under the ownership of N.A. Horton. N.A. Horton and his wife owned the book store and they lived in the basement. The Horton's ghost answers to the name Mary Melinda who was the first wife of the founder. N.A. Horton was due to give birth to their first child and at birth she and the baby died. Many times a woman holding a baby has been seen and caught on film. She wanders the store and the basement, turning lights on and off and knocking books on to the floor. Some even say you can hear the baby cry at night. The store will not stay open past dark and they can't keep workers due to this ghost. I myself have caught her on flim holding her little baby in her arms.

Visitors are welcome year-round to the Monastery of the Holy Spirit, the inspirational home of Georgia’s Trappist Monks. With more than 2,300 acres of contemplative space, the Monastery is less than an hour from Atlanta’s international airport. The new Monastic Heritage Center – a 17,000-square-foot, state-of-the-­art museum – is educational, interactive and kid-friendly. There is also a bonsai garden, store and cafe. At the Abbey Gift Shop, which is the largest Christian bookstore in Georgia, visitors can purchase monk-made biscotti, fruitcake and fudge, all of which the monks sell in an effort to be self-sustaining and feed the local poor. You can also see the Norman Gothic architecture of the Abbey Church and take a quiet stroll along the lake, or spend time in prayer and meditation.
