Powell's in Hyde Park. No question about it.

Locally, I have to agree. Powell's in Hyde Park is my favorite. Although I also have a soft spot for Bookworks on Clark. If I can go anywhere, though, I have to pick Powell's in Portland, even though it carries both new and used books.

Nothing beats Bookman's Alley of Evanston if you're east and Town House Books and Cafe in St. Charles is nice in the west.

Myopic in Wicker Park is pretty cool.
