Three of which in New York, naturally

The Huffington Post has a slideshow of its readers' favorite independent bookstores, including some classics like the Brookline Booksmith (check!), Powell's (check!) and Quimby's in Chicago (check!). New York's share includes the Strand and McNally Jackson -- although for what it's worth, I'd probably go Housing Works over McN. J. for personal reasons.

Should your local indie be on this list? Please, direct my future vacation plans (sort of joking).

My local (well, hometown) indie is owned by my mother, so yes, it should be on all the lists of best bookstores!

The bookstore nearest where I actually live is a used-and-rare emporium. It's pretty great but I wish they didn't paper their windows with anti-public-transit signs.
