I love bookstores. I love small, independent bookstores even more.There are two such stores in Winnipeg where I try to make all of my book purchases. Luckily for me, they are both minutes from where I work and I often pop in to browse on my lunch hour.
Whodunit deals only in mysteries. They are located in a little shop on Lilac Street, a mere five minute walk away. McNallyRobinson is in the Grant Park Mall, a five minute ride on my bike. Good thing books aren't crack-my addiction would be entirely too easy to fuel.McNally's has quite a few of these really cute bike racks, and often many of them are in use.
The inside of the store is furnished in a way that encourages lingering; big comfy chairs hidden between the bookshelves. There is a wonderful children's section as well. (I always get so distracted I forget to take pictures.)
Judging by the crowds, I am not the only one who still enjoys a good book.
