On the verge of its 40th year, BookPeople is still on a campaign to win over the hearts and minds of Austinites. Whether you're buying the latest issue of McSweeney's or picking up a copy of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies to punk your high school English teacher, BookPeople is Austin's independent behemoth. In a world of e-books and Kindles, there's still no better way to spend an otherwise blah afternoon (and your dollars) than perusing this bookstore's shelves, guided by the always helpful and savvy staff.
