Best Local Bookstore

Rediscovered Books

Giant chains of brick-and-mortar booksellers have come and gone, but Rediscovered endures. Now celebrating its 11th year at its Eighth Street location, Rediscovered has become a downtown institution, not just for its great book selections but also for its high-profile author appearances and community conversations.

2nd Place: Trip Taylor Bookseller—Trip Taylor is the go-to destination when the quest is a rare used book. Catch a Trip Taylor big sale, and you can walk away with an armful of bestsellers for less than $20.

3rd Place: Rainbow Books—Hands down, Rainbow Books the funkiest bookstore in town. What began as a tiny shop on Idaho Street has evolved into a colorful treasure trove on State Street. The Rainbow Books owners love to buy and trade used books as much as they love to sell them.
