Queen Anne Books
1811 Queen Anne Avenue North
Seattle, WA 98109
NileGuide Expert tip:
Be sure to ask the bookseller if there's any special promotions going on, like their annual sidewalk sale, or the new "galley table" – a once-a-year opportunity to get a free galley (advanced copy of a book) free with purchase of every regular book.
Queen Anne Books is everything a book lover wants in an indie bookstore. The store is fairly large but with a small, cozy feel. It has that sort of quiet that only comes with those who have a true respect for books. The staff gives you the freedom to browse, but pride themselves on getting "the perfect match" – if you want a book but don't have a specific title in mind, they will find something to keep you turning pages long past your bedtime.
Check out the staff recommendations on each shelf to hear their short reviews on featured books. Queen Anne Books also has a booth at the Farmers Market at West Crockett between Queen Anne and 1st West, specifically featuring books on gardening, health and food.
