Where Do Seattleites Go During National Reading Month?Whether you were born and raised in Seattle or are a brand new arrival, it’s likely that you are well aware that March is National Reading Month. As the second most literate city in the country, according to The Seattle Times, Seattleites enjoy a good book any time of year. We read in coffee shops, on the go, on a ferry, in the park, or in the comfort of our own homes. There’s no getting between a Seattleite and their reading material.
In honor of these 31 days dedicated to reading anything and everything, the legal team at Hardwick & Pendergast, P.S. would like to highlight some of the best places to indulge in your love for reading this March.
Seattle Public Libraries – It can be easy to forget the public library these days, with instant access to almost any book available online. But that doesn’t mean that libraries are obsolete. The Seattle Public Library is a world class location for discovering new works and engaging in literary discussions with fellow bibliophiles. Give your e-reader a break and stop by the library some time.
Elliot Bay Book Company – For more than 40 years, Elliot Bay Book Company has been the premiere spot to pick up the latest releases or comb through rows and rows of classics and bargains. It helps that the air is always tinged with the delicious smell of coffee and aged books.
Twice Sold Tales – With a huge selection and a pair of friendly shop cats to keep you company as you peruse the shelves, Twice Sold Tales is the perfect quirky used book shop to get lost in for an hour or more.
Magus Books – One of the oldest independent book stores in the city, Magus Books is well-known by students of the University of Washington and locals alike. Also, spring cleaning has kicked in and the shop has marked down old inventory to make room for new selections. Don’t miss out!
University Bookstore – It’s hard to go anywhere in Seattle without bumping into a University Bookstore, but that’s because there are eight locations! You don’t have to be a University of Washington student to shop here. There is a wide selection beyond just text books, and you can load up on Huskies and Seahawks gear, too.
