About

A Closer Look at Atticus Books & Music

Atticus Books & Music is a small, fiercely independent book and record shop, located at The Fountain in beautiful Fountain Hills, Arizona. Our mission is to enrich the lives of our customers by offering an array of old, new, borrowed, and blue book and album choices. We encourage all patrons to indulge their inner child and take the time to browse our bookshelves, flip through our crates of vintage vinyl, and rediscover their passions.

Atticus is run by a very old, bohemian soul who has a healthy appetite for wildly inventive narratives and artistic endeavors. Founded in 2010 as a genre-busting publishing house, Atticus morphed into a nostalgic brick & mortar bookstore experience in September 2022.

Atticus carries a wide range of new, reissued, and lightly used books and records that you’re unlikely to find at Target or even Barnes & Noble. We also carry contemporary bestsellers, illustrated children’s classics, banned books, award-winning literature, posters, postcards, and assorted ephemera. Far from elitist, Atticus feeds off the collective knowledge of book bloggers, voracious readers, music listeners, and community members whose deep and diverse interests help broaden the selection of titles represented.

Atticus hosts book club meetings and local author events and aspires to be a safe and supportive place for writers, readers, and music lovers to congregate.
