Best Bookstore: Book Loft
As the cliché goes, the best bookstores are those you can get lost in. In the Book Loft's case, that's a literal and figurative truth. The German Village bookstore's maze-like corridors are part of its charm, sure, but it's the knowledgeable staff, broad selection and decent prices that truly set it apart.
