Independent Bookstores

Are you looking for a local independent bookseller? If so, where do you live?

I'm posting this list for readers' convenience. And I plan to refer to it in an upcoming newsletter. In the meantime, if you are an independent bookseller, or know of a great one... please contact me at Julie Hyzy (at) gmail (dot) com. No spaces. I'll add bookstore information as it becomes available in future posts. This is a work in progress... but you gotta start somewhere, right? ;-)

Hi, Julie,

Here's a link to Mystery Bookstores on the Mystery Readers Journal website. Hope they're all still around. I try to keep up.

http://www.mysteryreaders.org/bookstores.html

Of course, there are plenty of great Indie stores with mystery sections. Dark Carnival in Berkeley is great.
