Sorry, Kindle—there’s nothing like cozying up with a real book. It seems others agree, as indie bookstores keep popping up around town. Our favorites offer a shopping experience that’s way more charming than Amazon, with reading nooks, cute trinkets, international publications, and limited editions.

Cover Books
Cover opened on the Westside last fall, specializing in gallery-worthy coffee table books, rare vintage finds, and periodicals focused on art, travel, and food. Sign up for the newsletter to learn about cool events like artist-themed dinners.

Read Shop
Dan Collier—who’s also behind perfectly appointed local shops like the Merchant—recently opened Read Shop in Vinings Jubilee. Relax with a novel on a retro leather couch, or bring the kids for story time twice a month.

Posman Books
Family-owned Posman Books has picked Atlanta for its third location (the first outside of NYC), which just landed at Ponce City Market. You’ll find fiction, nonfiction, and children’s lit, plus a stellar selection of gifts and greeting cards.
