    Indie bookseller since 1970, BookPeople is a winner of Bookstore of the Year by Publisher’s Weekly. Employee-written reviews, a coffee shop and tons of book signings and events make it a must-see.

    Great Selection of literature, and is located in the beautiful downtown Austin area. Once you grab a nice book you could literally walk to some of the best restaurants in town and have a good read.

    All you tech heads can go bang your digital drum elsewhere: We’ll be curled up with a good book at BookPeople, where the printed page is still king. Great selection, comfy chairs, and a coffee bar.

    I really liked the children's book section. I had fun exploring and browsing a book for my nephew. Everything about this place is open and friendly, and keep up with the events if you can.

    Almost every bookcase has a shelf dedicated to staff recommendations, and each one has a little card detailing WHY it's a staff pick. You don't get that with big box bookstores!

    No fewer than 3 "Can I help you find anything"s inside of 20 minutes; the best, most prolific written staff Rex's I have ever seen. And OMG the mystery section alone I could have spent three hours in!

    Great study spot - get a coffee inside and then set up shop at one of the shady tables outside; the staff won't bother you, I've sat here for hours studying for midterms.
