After-words Bookstore, Chicago Reviews

  • This is a wonderful little bookshop. I wandered around for a couple of hours just enjoying it. The staff was quite helpful and knowledgeable. If you have a backpack or a bag they will store it behind the counter for you. There is a local interest section that has a great variety of Chicago history. Their history section is pretty extensive as well. I found a copy of The Dream and the Tomb. It is a brief history of the crusades. I lost my copy many years ago and found it here for $12. Score. Stop by and enjoy this little bookshop if you have the time.

  • The staff are always lovely and there is a large selection of books, wonderfully arranged. I did not find what I was looking for but walked away happily with 4 other books :). I believe they also have programs for children, worth checking out if you're in the area.

  • Very nice book selection. More new than used though

  • The selection in here seems small until you walk downstairs and have rows upon rows of different sections of books. I found some very wonderful old time children's books on top of a newbie for myself. It was honestly hard to not pick more due to the mini sale prices around the shop.

  • Knowledgable owner, new and used books intermixed, great selection. Looks like the have signed and rare books as well. So lucky to have an indie bookstore tucked away in the neighborhood.
