 April A to Z 2021 Challenge

Communal Places

For Literary Enthusiasts


Alabama Booksmith is the product of the life work, the ultimate dream, really, of a family of booksellers from an incredibly long line of them. Strategically facing Alabama’s busiest highway from a tree-lined backroad, The Alabama Booksmith offers exceptional service with a distinctive business model that enhances the unique experience of browsing a bookstore where every cover is visible (how else can we judge, right?) and every book is signed! *Showroom is currently closed, but you can take advantage of their full-service website and parking lot pick-up.

  1. This sounds like a cool bookstore. Not sure I'll ever get to Alabama, but you never know.

    1. Hi Natalie!

      True. But if you're ever near Birmingham...

  2. What a cool bookstore. Good to see you on A to Z girlfriend. I was unable to finish last year and realized sometimes, you are the reader. I hope all is well with you. Ann

    1. Hi Ann!

      Good to see you too! And, yes, your blog has always been one of my favorites. I've come across a few cool 'Literary' places, living vicariously (via internet) as I do these days. I hope to visit in person, once we're free to move about the planet again :-)

  3. What a great topic for the #atozchallenge!

  4. I love that you can see ever book cover. That is so cool. Weekends In Maine

  5. Thinking of bookstores makes me sad. I think of all the stores that were near me where I used to like to go to browse or actually buy books. Now they are gone. I'm not sure how far the nearest bookstore is to me now. I can always go to the Walmart across the street from me, but they have a rather sorry selection.

    Hope this Alabama store hangs on.

    Tossing It Out

    1. Hi Lee!

      I'm amazed (and glad) that so many independent bookstores have survived.
      After all those recent tornados, I actually called and spoke to someone at this bookstore. They're fine, just anxious to fully re-open again ;-)
