Any self-proclaimed book-lover will agree: there’s something truly special about cracking open a brand new physical book. I mean, really, does the “new book smell” ever get old? In an age of e-readers and audiobooks, it’s easy to forget about just how magical this experience can be; lucky for Western New Yorkers, we have a pretty impressive array of independent bookstores to help remind us.
Regardless of your preferred method of consuming stories and information, we highly recommend supporting the local book shops in Buffalo that keep our community reading. Who knows, maybe you’ll even stumble upon your new favorite book! Grab a coffee and a friend (or don’t, if solo reading is your jam) and hit up the spots in our bookworm-approved guide below:
Did we miss one? Did one of these places close? Send us a note!
Our new design features a better browsing experience, modern mobile navigation, more visual displays of key info, better filtering options on the search page, and much more.
We hope you love our new look! That said, we’re #ForeverTweaking and would greatly appreciate your feedback so we can make StepOutBuffalo.com *all* you want and need as your go-to resource for the best of Western New York!
