Chicago Hot Spot: Unabridged Bookstore

My absolute favorite bookstore in the city has to be Unabridged Books.  It's never too crowded and it's always quiet which makes book browsing much more enjoyable.  They also post hand-written notes on some of their favorite books, giving you mini-reviews and recommendations on books right in front of you!  I've actually bought a few books from them just based on those reviews and their "staff favorites."  But the best part of this book store is the sale room.  They have tons of books on sale all the time and for as low as $5.  It's such a great deal, and they are good books!  I just bought Paris in Mind from them over the weekend (on sale!) and I can't wait to dive into it.

I highly recommend stopping in this adorable bookstore.  They also give you a bookmark with each book purchased so you can start reading on the way home.  AND there's a delicious gelato shop a few doors down, which is an added bonus!
