A few weeks ago, I got to go to Seattle to visit one of my best friends from college. Oh, what wonderful bookstores there are in that city!
First up, the book vending machines:
How great is that!?! I love it.
The first proper bookstore we visited was Lion Heart Book Store, located in Pike Place Market. We met David, who refers to himself as the 5th caretaker of the store, which opened in 1961. This funky store has a mix of new and used titles.
Store number two, also in Pike Place Market, was Golden Age Collectables. This store is heaven for graphic novel and comics fans.
And up third was Left Bank Books. A Seattle institution since 1973, Left Bank is collectively owned and operated by its workers. It doesn’t get more indie-fabulous than that.
Stay tuned for photos from Queen Anne Books, Eagle Harbor Book Company, and The Elliott Bay Book Company!
