More Books in Logan Square

Just a couple of weeks after I noticed flutters of something new at 2523 North Kedzie Blvd. a new bookstore, City Lit Books, is open for business. The shop's website doesn't appear to be up and running just yet, but the Facebook is active with updates. Unlike Bucket O' Blood or nearby Uncharted, City Lit sells new books of the general interest variety.

Bucket O' Blood is an expertly curated small shop that caters primarily to fans of speculative/science fiction, fantasy, and horror books. There's plenty there for any reader though. Uncharted sells used general interest books, plus some new locally churned stuff. They also host events. It's too early to know how City Lit will impact the neighborhood's readers, but look back for developments.
