Pick Up a New Book at These Local Shops

Book Shop

While it can be nice to download a book to your Kindle, nothing beats the way a real book feels. There’s something about holding a book in your hands and turning those pages that makes reading even more enjoyable. Instead of ordering your next book online, head to a local bookstore and pick up a title.

Page and Palette

Page and Palette is just down the road in Fairhope, and it’s one of the most popular bookstores around. Unlike the big bookstores, this one is quaint and charming, and you will fall in love with it the minute you walk through the door. It is obvious the staff loves books, and they have great recommendations. They will tell you about their favorite books. You can also tell them your favorite kinds of books, and they will help you find something similar. The bookstore has a huge variety of books, and it also hosts events. You can attend a signing or a speaking event at the store. Oh, and there is a coffee shop attached to the bookstore. The coffee shop is typically busy, but the staff is super-fast. You will have your coffee in no time at all.

Bienville Books

Bienville Books is located in nearby Mobile, and it’s perfect for people who love books. This is a really cool store, and it has two stories packed with books. You can find cheap used books here, plus some rare books that are hard to find. The blind date books are a fun feature. These books are wrapped in brown paper, so you can’t judge a book by its cover. Along with the books, you can buy art from local artists here. This is a unique shop, and it’s worth stopping by. One tip. If you go during the lunch hour, you might have a hard time finding a parking spot. Downtown Mobile can get busy, so try to come when others aren’t flooding the area to go to lunch.

Books transport you to new places. You get to live vicariously through the characters in the book, but sometimes, you want to go on a real adventure. When that’s the case, you need some wheels that are up to the job. That’s where Chris Myers CJDR in Daphne, Alabama, can help. Each Chrysler, Jeep, and Dodge we have in stock is ready to take you on an adventure. Stop by for a test drive and take one home today.
