    Independent Book Stores

    This may have been posted before, but just in case:

    http://www.booksense.com/index.jsp

    Great website for finding local booksellers for those who like to support the little guys. :)

    Reason #341 to hate suburbia: Nearest indie bookstore is 25+ miles away.

    Well, I live in suburbia, but I guess it's a bookish area. I found 4 w/in 15 miles!

    Hmmm, when I enter my zip it lists some store that are certainly NOT indie and doesn't list some that clearly are.

    I don't think that's as much a list of "independent bookstores" as a list of "BookSense members." There are several indie bookstores in my neighborhood that aren't listed there.

    I don't know what BookSense's definition of independent is, actually. They listed a bunch of members of a small local chain.

    it definitely does not list the indie bookstores in this area correctly. There are at least 4 that I know exist, that are not even mentioned on that list at all!

    I think you can suggest stores to be added to the list. You should check it out so that you can maybe share the wealth with your neighbors. :)

    Yeah, it could use some improvement. It listed one an hour away and one three hours away.

    There is one two blocks over.
