We recently had Indie Bookstore Day so let’s chat about our favorite Indie Bookstores!
We are lucky in that Houston is rich in Indie bookstores. I have visited (and wanted to hug) a few of them, and yet I know there are still more I haven’t been to. What I love about these Indie bookstores are all the author events they host!
Katy Budget Books was a favorite of mine when I lived closer to it. It, too, has great author events and has a sale twice a year where books are like pennies and you can come home with way too many used books to add to your shelves.
I have to edit this because I can’t believe I forgot to talk about Powell’s! It is a HUGE indie bookstore in Portland, that Rose and I got to visit a couple of years back. It spans a city block and is several stories tall. It was beautiful.
What Julie says. Seriously.
I love all three of the book stores mentioned above. Author events. Super-mega used book sales. Helpful, pleasant, staff. If I’m buying physical copies of books, it’s at one of these stores.
