Park Road Bookstore - Charlotte, NC
We found this independent bookstore on a visit to visit my #1 son last year during spring break. He took us for breakfast at The Flying Biscuit (highly recommended) and mentioned there was a pretty cool bookstore in the same strip center. This year we returned because I love bookstores that feature lots of employee recommendations displayed with the books. These people talk books. As I was browsing, I overheard a conversation between the bookseller and a customer - obviously a frequent customer - about the paperback cover of Ron Rash's Serena. It was a compelling enough conversation to make me find the book on the shelf and eventually buy it on the way out. Nice store!
