What type of person has a list of bookstores that they want to visit in their lifetime?
Me. I’m that person.
If you couldn’t tell from the photos on my my blog, or the title of my blog, or the book reviews on my blog, I’m a reader. And like all good readers, my happy place is in a bookstore! I often spend hours looking through rows and rows of books when I get the chance to walk into a store, and always leave with at least one (usually MORE) new book to put on my shelves and add to my seemingly endless To-Be-Read (TBR) pile, which I talked about in my previous post.
Listed on the map are 10 of my highest priority bookstores to visit (in no particular order):
- The Montague Bookmill in Massachusetts
- Faulkner House Books in Louisiana
- The Last Bookstore in California
- Powell’s City of Books in Oregon
- BookPeople in Texas
- Prairie Lights in Iowa
- Tattered Cover Book Store in Colorado
- Trident Booksellers and Cafe in Massachusetts (ok, to be fair, I’ve been here, but I LOVE THIS BOOKSTORE AND NEED TO GO BACK)
- Changing Hands Bookstore in Arizona
- Country Bookshelf in Montana
The list of bookstores to visit is actually much larger, but I have to be realistic. Most likely I’ll just keep wandering in to every one I find and calling it home for a little while. And that’s the best part, really. 🙂
