Like Books? Stop By the Largest Discount Bookstore in Illinois
You if or someone you know loves to read then you are going to love this three-level discount book store with over 800,000 books for sale.
Yup, OVER 800,000 books I mean looking at the photos you can spend all day in this discount book store. You can even take the train to visit the store since it's in Chicago. The store is located at 1564 N Milwaukee Ave in Chicago and really is something you have to see to believe. Myopic Books is the name of the store and has everything from fiction to non-fiction, science, religion and everything in ebterrn
The other great thing about this store is open seven days a week so you can make a day trip to the city and back. According to onlyinyourstate.com the basement has more than just books.
In the basement exists a vault that belonged to the business that rented the space prior to the bookshop. In that underground vault is where the mystery stories are held, adding to their flair for the dramatic.
I am not sure I could handle the basement, but the history portion of the building does have me interested a bit. I am not a big reader, but the next time I take a trip to the city I might have to put this on my bucket list to stop and explore. You never know you might discover some first editions (which they have) and antique books you never thought you needed but could come in handy.
