Bookstore Spotlight: Phinney Books & Madison Books 🎡 @phinneybooks opened in 2014 when author and Jeopardy champion Tom Nissley used his winnings to buy Santoro's Books (which had occupied the spot on Phinney Ridge in Seattle for nine years). This neighborhood bookshop is beloved for its new books, cards, puzzles, and popular book subscription service, Phinney By Post. When the opportunity to open a sister store in Seattle’s Madison Park neighborhood arose, Madison Books was born. @madisonbkstagram will officially open on Seattle Independent Bookstore Day, April 27th!

Seattle-ites: pause your snowpocalypse prep and take a peek at this amazing bookstore, Phinney Books. Upon entering it, you’ll be struck with this amazing desire to read EVERY book they carry because their collection is so rich. All that goodness paired with the superb kids corner and darling assortment of greeting cards makes this place an absolute gem. Needless to say, we love having some of our products there 😊
Sickbed Day No.2, and finished Helen De Witt's short story collection #SomeTrick. There's no writer I've come across who writes about genius, intellectuals, maths, data, languages, cleverness so cleverly or with great humour. These are wonderfully inventive and engaging tales of the mind and what we make of it. . Thanks to @phinneybooks for introducing me to this author. . @viccyiswriting I think you'd love this collection. . Also read The Last Samurai. It's amazing. . #HelenDeWitt #amreading #amwriting #shortstories #phinneybooks #literature #books #bookstagram #languages #maths #tales
