For #indieThursday, check out these great independent bookstores

I love a good independent bookstore. But in the part of the country where I live, they're a little far away. If you're like me, maybe you're making summer travel plans right now. And what better time to discover a new independent bookstore right?

Last holiday season, I sent Linc around the States to check out all these great bookstores; I've listed them below for #indieThursday (it's a Twitter thing, in case you're not familiar).

So I hope you'll join me and check out these bookstores for a summer visit. Or go to Indiebound for an independent bookseller at your summer vacation destination. Many of these stores have events...

Hooray For Books in Alexandria, VA

Seattle Mystery Bookshop in Seattle, WA

Little Shop of Stories in Decatur, GA

Tattered Cover in Denver, CO

Murder by the Book in Houston, TX

Lemuria Books in Jackson, MS

Park Street Books in Medfield, MA

Most of them stock signed books, and will ship them to you.


  1. Fleur, summer in my part of the world has made way for three months of monsoon that has already caused immense death and destruction in North India. We don't get many new bookstores in Mumbai at least.

  2. I've been watching this on the news, Prashant--it's heartbreaking. I hope you and yours are well, and stay safe throughout the season. It seems this summer has been wrought with natural disasters everywhere...
