It's been there for 30 years, and there's a good reason for that! – I love the Regulator--it's one of the things that has always drawn me to Durham. As a Duke student, I loved that I could walk there for author events and just to browse. Now that I live in Durham and work at Duke, I still frequent this place! The staff is friendly and helpful, and going in there is like visiting an old friend. The only reason I didn't give them a full 10 is because the shop makes me feel a little claustrophobic, especially when there are a lot of people there, like for an event or on a Saturday afternoon... They are a dedicated anchor on the changing face of 9th Street, and I would never want them to move, but I wish there were some way to open up their space a little better!
Agood selection of quality discount books, bestsellers, off-the-wall books, arts writings, gay and lesbian studies, and cultural studies sections. – In Short
Regulator is a reader's paradise. Lose yourself in stacks of magazines/fanzines and the latest releases. A chatty, knowledgeable staff won't hesitate to make a recommendation or steer you in the right direction. Drop by almost any night of the week and you're bound to find an up-and-coming writer, best-selling author or cult favorite reading.
