Bookstores with Great Romance Sections

Whenever I travel, I try to check out the romance section in at least one bookstore in my destination city. On a visit to the mall in Okemos, Michigan, I came across a bookstore with an amazing romance selection, both new and used: Schuler Books. Someone who works there is clearly a fan, and it shows.

This got me thinking - I'd love to have a list of bookstores in North America and beyond that do a great job with their romance sections, both for my own travel planning and to share.  The list below is growing, and I'd love your help with it! Please send me a message if you have any suggestions.


The Ripped Bodice - Culver City, California

(author Barbara Longely rec)

*Notes* The whole store is devoted to romance!

Half Price Books - Fremont, California

(author R.L. Merrill rec)

*Notes* Section for all romance genres.


Hockessin Bookshelf - Hockessin, Delaware

(author Cara Marsi rec)

*Notes* Owner a fan and supporter of indies and romance.


Turn the Page Bookstore - Boonsboro, Maryland

(author Nora Roberts rec)

*Notes* No, Nora Roberts didn't write me to recommend this book store. It's hers. I've never been the, but I'm assuming the store supports romance.


Schuler Books - Okemos, Michigan

*Notes* Both new and used sections have excellent selection, and the store has many places to sit and browse through books.
