Kansas City, MO- Bookstore City

We hit Kansas City, MO a few weeks ago, during fall break. One of our absolute favorite places, it’s so beautifully laid out. Especially gorgeous in the fall; there’s a reason why they call it the “Paris” of the Midwest.

Of course, we had to hit the bookstores. We were staying in the Westport District, where we got to check out Spivey’s Rare Books and the Halfprice Bookstore, both up the street. Wordamour discovered Halfprice Books, a chain of bookstores absolutely stocked to the gills with books and charm, last September in Berkeley. Believe me, anytime you’re in a city with a Halfprice Books, it’s worth the trip. Of course, we came out with a bagful.

But the highlights were Prospero’s Books, a gorgeous used and new bookstore in town and Reading Reptile, an absolutely magical world of a children’s bookstore in the Brookside shopping district. I’ve been to a lot of children’s bookstores and this has to have been one of the best. If you’re ever in KC, you’ve got to check these two out. Bye for now, y’all! SV

  1. I’m glad to hear you enjoyed your trip to Kansas City! I don’t get there as often as I should, living so close like I do.

    Your gift arrived in the mail yesterday, and I was blown away! Roses??? Wow!! Loved them! How generous and kind of you to think of me!
