Best Independent Bookstores in America

I wanted to make this list because books are my passion and independent bookstores in particular are a wonderful thing which should be given more notice. Note: This list is not alphabetical, nor in order of best to worst, but by our route, and the ones we happened to find. I’m sure I have missed many, so please input any really good bookstores, I’d love to know about them!
