  • Great place to go and relax, attend a lecture or reading by an author, maybe have a bite to eat and look through the displays and shelves looking for a book you didn't know about before you walked in....  more »
  • This is my favorite bookstore! But it's so much more than a bookstore. They have a food court and a stage. Lots of community events, author reading/signings, book club meetings, farmer's markets...  more »
  • One of my most favorite places in the world. The staff are extremely knowledgeable. Their selection is fantastic and they'll order anything in for you that they lack. There is story time for kids. They have author events that are always amazing. I could spend an entire day here quite happily. They have a superb selection of kitchy things near the registers that are so often my favorite gifts. The food court next door is also a bonus.
  • Third Place Books is one of the reasons we moved to Seattle! Honestly, that's true. We used to come here when we visited family over the past few years, and loved the huge selection of new and gently used books. We loved the variety of gifts! Clever, useful and downright hilarious choices that are hard to find all in one place. If you need anything books for children, there is a large department for them also with the the same clever gifts. Part of the charm is the location, there is a bakery and other food stalls all sharing a large community room with large and small tables to eat alone or with family or large groups of friends or even a club. A small stage is available for schools to use for performance arts or kindergarten graduations. Third Place Books features author signings and lectures that touch on a variety of interests. I could go on and on about what I love about this place, but I am sure my reasons are different from what others love about it. You owe it to yourself to come here and find your own reasons why you would rate TPB with five stars!
