The magazine said the independent North Decatur store is an Atlanta rarity with helpful, knowledgeable staff.
In a world of Kindles and iPads, the book store – independent and chain-owned – is going the way of the Dodo bird. So, a spot like North Decatur's Eagle Eye Book Shop is a particular gem, according to the editors of Atlanta magazine. The mag named the independent new and used book store to its Best of Atlanta 2012 list. The store was named the best spot for "Indie Books" in the metro area. It hasn't posted all the winners to its website, but North Druid Hills-Briarcliff Patch dropped 99 cents to pick up a digital copy, and we'll provide you with the magazine's words on the store: Independently owned bookstores are rare, and those that don't seem like museum exhibits are practically nonexistent. Which is why Decatur has a gem in Eagle Eye …

The event at Eagle Eye Book Shop next Tuesday is still on schedule, a shop employee said Wednesday.
Legendary rocker Gregg Allman remains on schedule to appear next week at Eagle Eye Book Shop after he was cleared by doctors following concerns about his heart. The event next Tuesday at 7pm has been scheduled since March, but Allman's entire book tour was placed in question late last month after he was forced to undergo cardiac testing after he felt arrhythmia connected to his hernia surgery, which was the product of a 2010 liver transplant. The Allman Brothers brother is touring the country in support of his memoir, My Cross to Bear. The tour was delayed about a week as it was supposed to begin this week. The Tuesday event in North Decatur will serve as his first stop. Get the news from North Druid Hills-Briarcliff Patch in your email …

What was expected to be the biggest event in the store's history is now canceled after the popular filmmaker canceled a series of similar events nationwide, the store's manager said Friday.
You can put away your snoogins and your snootchie bootches and whatever other ridiculous slang terms you planned to throw at Kevin Smith when he came to North Decatur next month. The March 20 event at Eagle Eye Book Shop has been canceled. Smith and his publisher have axed the majority of similar appearances at bookstores across the country in support of his forthcoming book, Tough Sh*t: Life Advice from a Fat, Lazy Slob Who Did Good, said Charles Robinson, manager and co-owner of Eagle Eye Book Shop. The event featuring the multi-hyphenate entertainer was expected to be the largest the store ever put on, Robinson said. A crowd larger than 400 fans was expected, he said. To date, the store's largest event featured author Vince Flynn, who …

The multi-hyphenate entertainer comes to Eagle Eye Book Shop next month in support of his book, "Tough Sh*t: Life Advice from a Fat, Lazy Slob Who Did Good."
Everyone be quiet. Silent Bob is coming to town. The filmmaker/writer/actor/comic/fanboy/airline warrior/Ben Affleck champion also known as Kevin Smith will visit Eagle Eye Book Shop next month in support of his newest book, Tough Sh*t: Life Advice from a Fat, Lazy Slob Who Did Good. The book comes out March 20, and Smith will be at the popular North Decatur bookstore on March 27 at 7pm, according to a schedule the store sent out to customers. For the uninitiated, Smith rose to fame in the '90s as a New Jersey nobody who sold his comic book collection and racked up credit card debt to raise $30,000 to make Clerks, a meandering, black and white indie film chronicling the hilarious, R-rated exploits of two twentysomething convenience store …
