I tried a new bookstore the other day. It was delicious.
Porter Books and Bread is located on the grounds of the old Fort Harrison and features fresh-baked, homemade breads and desserts. Sandwiches are named for literary figures. I had a Dumas, if I recall correctly. (Which wasn’t a Monte Cristo, curiously.) I took home a gothic tale which I haven’t started yet.
That puts me at three of the five on this Best Bookshops of Indianapolis list. It begs the question: What makes it a “best” bookshop? Selection? Service? Side quests, like tasty sandwiches? Tell me your favorite book haunts and why. (Can be shops, libraries, readers’ groups, whatever!)
