Add another great bookstore to the “bookstores we love” collection. The Elliott Bay Book Co. is a fantastic place for books in Seattle’s Pioneer Square neighborhood. Like all independent book stores in the western US (disclaimer: n=2), Elliott Bay Book Co. is a rambling, ramshackle store that hearkens back to our frontier past. It reminds me of The Tattered Cover in Denver’s LoDo district. It has creaky wooden floors, just one more room around the corner with even more fantastic books, and it feels like it has been there forever. I thoroughly enjoyed my time there yesterday, exploring the endless stacks. Seek it out should you find yourself in Seattle.
