My semi-annual trip to one of my favorite bookstores (tagged) happened this weekend! #shopindie #independentbookstore #bookstores

Some Europa, NYRB and Murakami. And a Yates I didn‘t know existed! 👏

Hope you all had as much success this weekend.

ValerieAndBooks Great haul! I‘ve learned to look at the bottom of spines for the logos of publishers I like 😊 2mo
ValerieAndBooks But of course titles and authors are important too! 2mo
cathysaid @ValerieAndBooks Yes! I tend towards publishers I like at out-of-town bookstores (no idea why). But still, occasionally I run across a Europa or NYRB I don‘t enjoy. It‘s a fine balance 😆 2mo

I found a charming little independent bookstore while vacationing on Mackinac Island. I‘ve been wanting to read Neil Gaiman for a while and I found a book of his that really caught my attention (tagged) and a Detroit true crime book since I need one from Michigan to add to my collection. 🖤 // #independentbookstore #mackinacisland #michigan

It‘s small business Saturday!

What favorite local bookstore are you hitting up today? Tag or comment below 📚

I‘m in Houston, TX visiting my in-laws, and Brazos Books is where it‘s at! This store is fantastic. And, just down the street from Brazos is Murder by the Book, another terrific spot.

Awk_Word_Smith @YouReadMyEyes It‘s a magical place. I *love* the Rare Book Room on the 4th floor. Plus they have pop-up Strands all over the city. 12mo

Caterina This is awesome! And I loved the worker-owner cooperative method talked about in the article - that's an exciting way for the bookstore to be more connected to the community and stay in business! 13mo

What are the odds that on the very day of #ManBooker2018 shortlist announcement, one of the authors on the list is at my local #independentbookstore 👏🏽🙌🏽. What luck!! It was such a pleasure meeting Esi Edugyan and I‘m looking forward to reading WASHINGTON BLACK! Congrats Esi! 📚🥂
