ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — One of the world’s best independent bookstores is doing business in Albuquerque’s Old Town Plaza, according to readers with Atlas Obscura, a “global community of explorers” that shares travel and destination stories online.
The website polled its users for Independent Bookstore Day recently about the best independent book sellers around the globe, coming up with a list of 62, the majority of them in America.
“To mark the occasion, we asked Atlas Obscura readers to tell us about their favorite local booksellers, and the response was overwhelming,” according to Atlas Obscura. “From small towns to big cities, hundreds of readers wrote in to explain exactly why they love their favorite independent bookstore, in words and in photos.”
The Duke City’s Treasure House Books & Gifts, 2012 S. Plaza NW, which has been in business since 1974, was singled out as one the best indies.
