After-Words Is A 2-Story Bookstore In Illinois That Is Like Something From A Dream

For those of you who love to read, a visit to a bookstore is an enticing adventure. What exciting page-turner will you find? Is the next book in a particular series out yet? What book will you find that you haven’t read yet? The possibilities are endless. And while a visit to a larger, corporate-run bookstore is always a possibility, why not visit an independent bookstore in Illinois instead? There may not be as many indie book shops left, but the ones that are around are worth visiting (and supporting). After-Words New and Used Books in Chicago is one such bookstore we should all visit.
