Most people that know me are aware there is something about independent booksellers that I can’t seem to get enough of. Yes! There is something magical about entering a bookstore filled with floor to ceiling shelves and climbing an old wooden ladder to pull a book off the shelf. It's also a great place to meet people attending workshops and to interview authors who are only too happy to sign their latest work while speaking about the pleasures of writing. So, here are some of my most recent stops.
The Next Page Bookstore & More is a multi-floor store with a variety of new and previously owned books, along with a great selection of gift items. I tend to spend a lot of time hanging out in the poetry section while here.
Turn the Page Books and More is a bookstore true to its name. Here, you'll find a little bit of everything. I love the cozy vibe of this store which has an original tin ceiling and vintage Big Book signage. It's one of my favorite locations for vintage books and music.
Hyde Brothers Bookseller has more books than I could ever possibly hope to read. Here you can trade or sell your own books and they have a large variety of categories to choose from such as; Arts, crafts, fantasy, gardening, horror, history, literature, nature, religion, science fiction, self-help, sports and more.
This store will enchant any book lover with its shelves upon shelves of books and its friendly felines.
Book Reviews sells it all. Here you'll find fiction, non-fiction suspense, classics, history, science, music, art, travel, children's, vintage, cooking, and much more.
If you love pop culture an appreciate comic books and graphic novels you might just love Alter Ego comics as much as I do. They have a great selection of collectibles too.
