Real Simple did a feature earlier this spring on the best bookstores in every state. The magazine partnered with Yelp to explore the best independent bookstores. Using an algorithm that looked at the number of reviews and star ratings for each business, Yelp singled out the top bookseller in each state.
The results are arranged alphabetically by state with a photo, a short description of what makes each bookshop special, and book recommendations from employees in each store.
