Dwell on Independents

dwell.JPGHere at the Book Club we're big proponents of the independent bookstore and Dwell magazine's map of indies across the country comes at a perfect time for like-minded folks who want to know where they can browse good stores in their vacation destinations. The list is being compiled through the help of reader comments, so if you're a regular customer of a great independent, make sure to enter your rave review for the sake of this summer's spate of Chicago visitors. Already on the map are Open Books, Myopic, Women & Children First, the Book Cellar, and the Seminary Co-op.

Yes! I read about this the other day and made mention of it on my blog. It's such a brilliant idea and a Dwell is the perfect forum to reach a wide demographic of conscientious people. Thanks for posting.
