Interesting Indies #1: Book Beat

interesting indies

 Hello readers! Welcome to a new segment where I spotlight my favorite local indie/used bookstores.

For my first pick, I chose to spotlight the book store Book Beat. It’s an independent mid-sized book shop that carries a nice a selection of all genres. Not only does it have tons of great books, it also sells artwork too. It’s located in the Metro Detroit area and it originally opened its doors in 1982.

A very kind gentlemen that greets me at the door.
Cool African masks/headpieces by the front door.
View from front door. My book brain is singing “the hills are alive with abundant books”!


The aisle that leads into YA fiction goodness 🙂
Postcard/general greeting card section. They have some really cool bookish style picks and if you like famous artwork, they have those styles as well.
Ooh look! More books to buy! I could stay here forever.

Another added bonus, if you’re a music nerd like me, a cool music shop is located right next door. Street Corner Music, has nice selection of music from all genres at affordable prices. If you’re in the area, you should definitely stop by and visit this awesome indie bookstore. To see my book purchases, from my most recent trip to this store, stay tuned for my August Book Haul. Hope you enjoyed this first installment of “Interesting Indies”!
