It might be the latest fiction bestseller you’re after, or perhaps something from the realms of architecture or queer literature. Many any of these places also do double duty: selling vintage threads and second-hand vinyl. Whatever it is, there’s nothing quite like browsing (or procrastinating) inside a bricks-and-mortar bookshop, where the recommendations are free and – if you know where you go – the coffee is strong.
Plus it’s always nice to talk with the person who stocked the shelves themselves. Chances are, they’ve been in the business for decades and know every title in stock. Many of these bookshops also act as community hubs: hosting live performances, author events and – in some cases – astrology readings and yoga.
