Best Local Bookstore

Rediscovered Books

Readers' Picks

A good bookstore is a lot like the products it sells: It has to grab you, then settle into a comfortable place, all the while building upon itself, opening up new aspects and ideas with each chapter until you're ultimately hooked. It has to envelope you in a world you can get lost in and can't wait to get back to once you've left so you can find out what happens next. It's a formula Rediscovered Books has mastered, creating a place where bibliophiles can indulge in the written word--whether it's in the form of a new book or joining others at a book reading, signing or a discussion group. The store has earned the loyalty and love of Boise book lovers for years, as evidenced by the fact that BW readers have voted it tops in this category for the past five years. We're just happy we have a place where we can go to breathe in the intoxicating scent of a real book. 180 N. Eighth St., Boise, 208-376-4229,
