If you are tired of the gigantic chain bookstores, then check out Unabridged Bookstore. Catering to a large gay clientele, this bookstore has a big selection of gay and lesbian themed literature. Downstairs it has the largest collection of travel books in the city. This is everything a neighborhood bookshop should be. Browsers are more than welcome and the shelves are packed with varied and interesting reading and the staff is very helpful.
Great atmosphere and a large collection of both popular and hard-to-find titles. Walls and aisles are covered with books.
Also a large selection of gay and lesbian titles, and a safe atmosphere for browsing. Huge selection of bargain buys. Treat yourself to a visit.
I was so lucky to have the Unabridged Bookstore in my neighborhood, blocks from my first apt. in Chicago. Since moving a distance away, I still make a point of traveling across town to this very quaint, friendly bookstore. The walls are lined with stacks of books, the best of which are reviewed on index cards by the store's highly intelligent and eclectic staff. I especially trust Ed's opinion, who has recommend some of, what are now, my favorite reads.
