Akron Book Tour, Part Two—Snowball Books

Snowball Bookshop
564 W. Tuscarawas Ave
Barberton , Ohio 44203

I usually only visit Barberton for two things: fried chicken and Snowball Books. Located on the Tuscarawas strip just a few doors down from the gorgeous Lake Theater (wait for the Akron-area cinema tour), Snowball has a highly organized, extensive selection of new and old books.

While browsing the UFO/Bigfoot/Supernatural section (my favorite) I ran into one of the three cats that make their home inside the store (see above photo). They’re happy to accept petting while you take a seat in the many padded chairs available as you flip through your selections.

Just when I thought I had seen the entire store I discovered a second room and a basement filled with even more hardcovers and tchotchkes.

If I had to describe Snowball in one word it would probably be “cozy.” Visit the above Web site to view over 60,000 books they have stored in stacks.
