Shopping for books with your special someone can be a great way to get a read on them. Learn what they like and show them your own tastes and you’ll have plenty to talk about over dinner. Here are three of Seattle’s best indie bookstores that you might want to consider visiting. For one of the best selections in the city, try the famous Elliot Bay Book Company. They also happen to be one of the top spots for famous authors to do signings when they come through town. Or if you’re a fan of the rarest of books, head to Wessel & Lieberman Booksellers. Be prepared to spend some money, however, as they don’t mess around there. And for those that love a good mystery, Seattle Mystery Bookshop is a haven of crime novels, thrillers, spy stories and more.
