St Louis BooksIn St. Louis, the era of the neighborhood bookstore is far from over. There are still plenty of local shops and cafes where you can pick up the newest release from your favorite author or fall in love with some entirely new writer or genre. As avid readers, our real estate agents know the feeling!

National Book Month is coming up fast, and there are lots of places for you to indulge your cravings in and around St. Louis. Small, local businesses help these communities thrive, and that includes scads of booksellers. There just might be special events or deals on the way for this month's celebrations, too.

Here are just a few of the area's many bookshops for you to visit:
