Texas Bookstores

There are nearly 300 independent and chain bookstores in Texas—not counting gift shops that just happen to sell books, or museum stores, or book sections of large department or discount stores. They run the gamut of specialties: children's bookshops, college bookstores, used and rare booksellers, bookstores for art, architecture, comics, ethnic interest, religion, philosophy. Bookstores that have been around for decades, and others that launched last year. Some with coffee shops and cafés, some with art galleries or bars. From Abilene to Wichita Falls, you're sure to find something interesting to read, hear, or learn in each of these bookish haunts.

Mouse over hotlinks for store website. Indie bookstores are in blue.
