1 City 5 Ways: Bookworm

1 2 3 4
Where to Stay // Alexis Hotel
Ask about the Author's Suite at this artsy boutique hotel, then cozy up to the fireplace with a signed edition from the room's private library.

Morning // Open Books
Even if all you know are limericks, don't miss this postage-stamp bookstore dedicated exclusively to poetry—one of only two such shops nationwide.
Afternoon // Elliott Bay Book Company
Now located in Seattle's eclectic Capitol Hill neighborhood, this is one of the country's most beloved independent booksellers. Author sightings abound.
Bauhaus Books + Coffee
A few blocks east of Elliott Bay, Bauhaus Books + Coffee is a reading nook and Seattle boho hangout par excellence.
Dinner // Library Bistro & Bookstore Bar
Bookcases line a dining room that feels like a mid-century supper club, but the menu is all modern gastropub. Find a favorite novel in the bar and you can buy it on the spot.
The perennial contender for America's most literate city is home to the Amazon juggernaut and indie bookstores large and small—plus plenty of cozy coffee shops.
