Add BookPeople in Austin, TX to your list of indie bookstores to visit before you die! This Austin staple is a stellar example of why indie bookstores are so great.
It’s two floors of awesome. Grab a coffee from their super cute cafe and get lost in the aisles filled with books, books, books. They have a friendly staff ready to recommend or find the book you’re looking for and if not, they can totally order it for you. Check out their events because they always have something cool going on whether it’s a visit from a favorite author or a book club!
