    T+L: America's Best Bookstores

    I just saw this in the T+L email I receive. An interesting list of places, especially for those interested in books outside B&N and amazon.com. I think these stores can have tons of character and originality...and you never know what you might find!

    I'm sure others have various favorites as well!

    :)

    Some of the best and most interesting books we found lately are from Charity shops, buying from them, doing something good in the meantime and finding a book which isn't always available at mainstream bookstores either. Very nice.

    I really miss Oxford Books in Atlanta. My family always stopped there when we visited town. I think it's been closed for 15 years now though, not long after I moved to town... hmm...

    Good list. I would add the Book Loft in German Village in Columbus, Ohio.

    I've been to half of those and would say it's a pretty good list, especially if one is focused on stores that sell new (or new and used) books. I am surprised that the NY selection is not the Strand, but Bookbook is one of the stores I haven't been to.
