Tucked into a sweet little strip mall at 16th Street and Bethany Home, this charming shop is our idea of old-school bookstore. Open seven days a week, The Bookshop is a great place for collectors of rare books and those of us just looking for our next good read. (We recently snagged one of each: an early hardcover printing of The Bell Jar and a signed copy of Anne Tyler's Noah's Compass — both for under 20 bucks!) Affordable prices, monthly deals, and local author events are the order of the day here, and the management is quick to talk up whatever it's reading at the moment or suggest something that you might like better, based on your own current favorites. You'll want to come back often, not just because this is such a great place for book lovers, but because The Bookshop features work by a different local artist every month. We're in love!
