Today is one of my favorite days on the calendar: Independent Bookstore Day! I love when I get the opportunity to support my local bookstore so I wanted to share a few of my KC favs with you today!

I’m a firm believer that reading should be an escape, not a chore.
Afterword Tavern and Shelves is the perfect reading escape in the heart of the Crossroads, and just also happens to be where I host my monthly book club! Afterword is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays, but they have an amazing all day happy hour on Sundays. Be sure to order an old fashion while you browse their amazing selection of books.

Located in the River Market, Our Daily Nada is the perfect place for good reads and great food. There is plenty of seating and every corner is perfect for curling up with a good book. Did I mention this place is owned by two AMAZING women Amy and Andrea?

If perusing used books is your jam, Prosperos Books needs to be number one on your list. Every nook of this 3 story shop is lined with books, and there’s a ladder that stretches along the shelves that makes you feel like you’ve stepped right out of Belle’s personal library. After you explore Prosperos be sure to grab a burger at my one of my favorite spots, Fric & Frac, which is located right next door.
