Browsing the Indies…continued

This post, I’m continuing my celebration of independent bookstores with images from two favorites in the south. Although each shop is unique, they share a love and respect for the written word.  Books and Books is a terrific store with locations in Coral Gables and in Miami Beach, Florida. You can find them on the web at http://www.booksandbooks.com.

Lemuria Books is located in Jackson, Mississippi (home of the late Eudora Welty). Lemuria offers all the strengths of an independent…plus a serious knowledge of southern literature. Check out their blog and signed first editions club at http://www.lemuriabooks.com. And if you find yourself in Jackson, I recommend picking up a copy of Suzanne Marrs’s biography, Eudora Welty at Lemuria…treating yourself to a tour of Ms. Welty’s lovely home, and then toasting her with a glass of Maker’s Mark (her drink of choice).
