We know you heart your Kindle, but (hopefully), books aren't going out of vogue anytime too soon. While they may take up space, there's something to be said for handing a slightly tattered piece of history, humor, style, fashion, fantasy, or whatever else the Dewey Decimal System held back in the day — that is, if you go the used route.
Yes, you can still purchase new bound wordy-wonders, and while online shopping is always an option, we suggest you check out these five surviving Chicago bookstores. Not chains, rather Windy City originals. So, pour that cup of java (or glass of vino!) and get ready to while away some serious winter hours. It's time to bust out that original bookmark.
