5 Indie Bookshops to Visit Now

If you need a new novel or a place to escape, head to one of these literary sweet spots and be reminded of the joys of reading.

Autumn is coming.  And with the arrival of cooler days and blustery weather, bookstores become our go-to hideaways, offering all manners of escape. Whether you’re looking for a place to bring the kids, a cozy spot to take a deep dive into a new title, or a meetup where you can hobnob with fellow bibliophiles, these independent bookshops will whisk you away with literature and libations.

One More Page Books

Tucked away on a side street in East Falls Church, One More Page Books packs quite a punch. With detailed staff recommendations lining the walls, weekly author talks, wine tastings, book club meetups and a staff so knowledgeable you’ll always leave with exactly the read you were searching for, the store is a reminder that there’s so much more to bookstores than just, well, books. The shop’s stated mission is to inspire a love of reading, and the staff will often go above and beyond to help you find a title that suits you. They’ll even order in books that they aren’t in stock, upon request.
