New Top Ten Tuesdays

Thought I'd try something new for a few weeks. Every Tuesday I'll put out my top ten list of various themes. The listings will be in alphabetical order, not rank, and if you feel I've missed something, feel free to comment!

Top Ten Chicagoland Independent Bookstores
  1. 57th Street Books in Hyde Park
  2. Barbara's Bookstore UIC location
  3. Book Cellar in Lincoln Square
  4. Book Stall in Winnetka
  5. Centuries and Slueths in Forest Park
  6. Myopic Bookstore in Wicker Park
  7. Quimby's in Bucktown
  8. Sandmeyers Bookstore in the South Loop
  9. Women and Children First in Andersonville

Hey, I know the Sandmeyers! I was very good friends with their son growing up. I need to make a point to stop by there sometime and say hi.

Also, don't forget Bookman's Alley in Evanston. I don't know if you're counting used bookstores, but even if you're not the ambiance of that place should make up for it. And while we're talking about Evanston, Great Expectations and Chandler's deserve honorable mentions, even if they're both long gone. Maybe a Top Ten Defunct Bookstores list is in order.
