Left Bank Books
One is struck immediately by the irony of this store's existence. Located right at the busy entrance to Pike Place Market , Seattle's commercial epicenter, it favors a left-leaning selection of titles. The selection includes everything from anthropology to literature and political science. The staff is knowledgeable and helpful, and the selection is comprehensive within its scope. If you've just arrived from the real Left Bank, you may find that this store goes some way toward soothing any homesickness you may feel.
Just what a little indie bookstore should be. Crowded, cramped and jammed with cool books and good causes. I bought a Phillip K. Dick novel.
I was semi-offended they asked to keep my backpack, but in a place like Pike Place, I guess you have to worry about thievery.
