BEST BOOKSTORE (USED)

Magers and Quinn

With its cluttered shelves and seemingly endless rows of books, it's easy to get lost inside Magers and Quinn. From Charlie Brown to Aristotle, hidden treasures can be found in every nook and cranny of the store. It's the perfect place to browse, with more than 120,000 used and current titles, with subjects ranging from how to cook to how to find a date. Snuggled between the white shelves of popular titles are old, dusty cases filled with a first-edition Dickens and other collector's items, a reminder that a book's magic is timeless. Located in the heart of Uptown, Magers and Quinn offers a nice break from the endless cafés, restaurants, and bars that line the street. Late-night weekend hours make this store the perfect stop on the way home from an evening on the town. The shop also has one of the most active author reading programs in town, often with a dozen or more events a month. Magers and Quinn keeps the literary spirit alive, bringing authors and book lovers together in the name of a good read.
