I’ll start. :slight_smile: I love Astoria Bookshop in Queens! These days I go there for their Wednesday storytime with my little guy. It’s a beautiful little place AND as an added bonus they have a bookstore puppy!

And I have really fond memories of the library in the town where I grew up (Crewkerne, England). The children’s corner there was just the best.

Unnameable Books is probably my favorite bookstore in Brooklyn…at least it’s the one I visit most since I live nearby! They’re majority used books but have new books as well, and quite well curated.

I wish there was more of a cozy, serves coffee and snacks, place-to-hang-out-all-day bookstore near me. But Couth Buzzard, in Seattle in the neighborhood where I grew up, fits that bill perfectly :slight_smile:
