After a long day, there’s nothing better than curling up with a good book. Whether you like thrillers or historical romance, several locally owned bookstores offer these genres and more. Local bookstores with curbside pickup near our apartments in west Houston include:
Murder by the Book
A local fixture since 1980, Murder by the Book is one of the country’s oldest mystery specialty bookshops. McKenna Jordan became the owner of this local bookstore in 2003. She has read crime fiction for the last 15 years and states, “there’s nothing that beats a fresh new voice that grabs you from the first line.” Her recommendations include The Butterfly Girl, Turn of the Key, and Death in Provence.
Called a “hub for the most creative, intelligent, and engaged readers in Houston,” Brazos Bookstore offers something for everyone. It strives to provide the best contemporary and classic literature along with the latest in nonfiction. Keaton became passionate about reading at a young age. When his mom wasn’t looking, he’d stand on the couch and pull as many books off the shelf as possible. Today, Keaton is the store’s book buyer and is proud to be a part of your literary journey. Genres include humor, history, and true crime.
Blue Willow opened in 1973 when the intersection of Memorial and Dairy Ashford featured a four-way stop. Originally called Musabelle’s Books, this local bookstore is known for its friendly staff. If you’re looking for suggestions, give them a call before placing your order. Blue Willow also offers the Coffee Cake Book Club. Held through Zoom, it meets on the third Wednesday of every month at 11:00 AM.
