Living in the Lansing area, I have the good fortune to have several favorite bookstores. One that you may not have heard of yet, but should definitely get to know, is Everybody Reads. It's a unique bookstore, nestled right on the Eastside of Lansing, and it has a cozy, neighborhood feel to it, along with an eclectic but accessible selection of titles. You can find a story about its origins here.
If you haven't stopped by Everybody Reads already, check it out!
