It’s National Reading Month! Have You Been to These 4 Book Stores

It’s March, which also means it’s National Reading Month and time to celebrate reading with your friends and family! All you have to do is choose which day or days in March you will do a reading activity with your family or friends.

While the program is geared towards children, anyone can participate and use this national event to reevaluate their reading habits and start making new choices. Want to start reading more? Make a goal – like one book a month – and use this event as your starting point! Windermere Mercer Island is celebrating by sharing our favorite bookstores from Edmonds to Tacoma.

In the heart of downtown Edmonds, Washington, the EDMONDS BOOKSHOP is full of books waiting for you to enjoy. No matter your preferred genre – fiction, mystery, contemporary, sci-fi, nonfiction – they have you covered.

A local Mercer Island bookstore, ISLAND BOOKS is a humble store near the downtown and business districts. Without a specialty, they offer books of all shapes, sizes, and genres! Bring your little tots and enjoy story time on Wednesdays, with picture book readings by their staff or a special guest!

In the small “downtown” area of Seward Park, you’ll find THIRD PLACE BOOKS, a small but mighty bookstore that took up shop after PCC moved into a larger location in Columbia City. Their third location – their first and second being in Lake Forest Park and Ravenna, respectively – they offer 200,000+ books of general interest!

Our last favorite – for this list – is KING’S BOOKS in Tacoma, Washington. With 5,500 square feet of bookstore, they offer approximately 150,000 books across an array of general interest genres. Since 2000, they’ve been Tacoma’s largest used and new independent bookstores in the greater Tacoma area.

So, won’t you read with us? Did we miss any of your favorite, local bookstores in the region? Let us know!
