As a new resident to Nashville, TN, I overlooked the fact that there is a local bookstore that carries alternative materials right here in Nashville. According to the BPL Zine, "it's best to buy zines in person." I am hoping to find some treasures at The Great Escape, a local venue I just discovered on the great WWW...... although they seem to be lacking in zines, looks like they might have some awesome comix and graphic novels, the real kicker here is that they also have a half-priced store in town. I know what I'm do'in dork-out!

The Great Escape
1925 Broadway
nashville, TN 37203
(615) 327-0646

The Great Escape Half-Price or Less Store
1907 Broadway
Nashville, TN 37203
(615) 321-5424

Additionally, I was reminded by the BPL zine not to overlook other venues for buying in person such as zine fests. The Zine World Website has a great section for zine related events which will provide opps to buy zines and meet their creators, and learn stuff too.
