The Book Exchange

Readers' Pick

There’s nothing wrong with Barnes & Noble, but Missoula is also blessed with several local bookstores with depth, including Fact & Fiction and Shakespeare & Co. And then there’s The Book Exchange, which, in a competitive field, walked away with top spot. It’s no secret why. The store on Brooks Street is big and smart and has great prices on new and used books. We love everything about the place—but still we have to wonder how such a distinct store, even in a strip mall, could end up with such a generic name. The Book Exchange: 2335 Brooks St.; 728-6342;
