Best Bookstore

Mac's Backs

An all-too-rare independent bookstore in the Cleveland area, Mac's Backs doesn't have the most books of any bookstore in town, but it does have the most interesting selection, with owner Suzanne DeGaetano doing the selecting. You probably won't find the latest John Grisham here, but you will find plenty of mysteries, poetry, and literary fiction. The staff is accessible and perfectly willing to order hard-to-find titles. Cozy basement readings on Friday nights by local and national authors round out the experience.
