Communal Places - K


Communal Places for Literary Enthusiasts

When two writers needed a place to complete their manuscripts, the logical solution for them was to create one - in the form of the King’s English Bookshop. They’ve been “matching books to readers since 1977” and enjoy a strong and beloved presence in their Salt Lake City, UT community. They host numerous events, accept consignments (check guidelines) and remind us that Independent Bookstore Day is April 24th!

  1. Places like these are becoming a rarity I think. I need to find a used bookstore near me that specializes in Spanish language books. I don't plan to read them and my wife doesn't want them.

    1. Hi Lee!

      Yes, even before 2020, Indy bookstores were becoming few and far between.
      Even if they don't specialize, a small shop may have a certain section they could put your books in.
