Stores that hawk books are hard to find in South Florida, even if we count corporate Starbucks dispensaries tricked out with two stories of teen fiction, celebrity magazines, and more literary lions on the walls in pretentious murals than in the stockroom. Second Edition Book Shop is one of the few remaining members on the endangered-species list — and the best. Tucked into a shopping center off Stirling Road in Davie, Second Edition is tight and cozy on the inside. Stocked floor to ceiling, all the books choke the store with the sweet aroma of well-thumbed pages. Books cost half the sticker price or less. Up front, you'll find inviting leather chairs for test-driving the books. Although there's a literature section way in the far back, Second Edition's sweet spot is genre potboilers — mysteries and sci-fi adventures and sweaty romances, anything you might need to speed through a day at the beach.
