The Book Exchange

Readers' Pick

We are a bookish, literary community, which is reflected in the fact that, in this age of online and onscreen reading, in addition to a chain bookseller, we also still have several great independent bookstores. Our readers’ pick amongst all of them is The Book Exchange, and it’s not hard to see why once you step beyond its strip-mall exterior and see a lot of used books in fine shape that sell for as little as a few bucks, not to mention more than 180,000 books in total, many of them out-of-print; a wealth of works by local authors; a great selection of volumes about Montana and the West; and an in-store Liquid Planet coffee shop, which makes this a great place to kill an afternoon. The Book Exchange: 2335 Brooks St., 728-6342,
