Austin was just named one of the top cities in the world for bookstores per capita, which isn’t much of a surprise to avid readers who call Austin home. Not only does the city have a great amount of bookstores, it also has a different type of store for every bookworm personality. Here are just a few of our favorite bookstores, no matter how discerning the bibliophile:

For Those Who Have to Crack Open Their Piggy Banks for New Books

And while it’s not a place to buy books, the Austin Public Library system pretty much rules. Don’t forget that in a town with rising rents and very few free parking spaces, you can still grab some knowledge for free.
