Best Bookstore

Joseph-Beth Booksellers

It's no coincidence that when Hillary Clinton came to Cleveland to promote Living History, she chose to do it at Joseph-Beth. The Shaker Square mainstay is the city's best bookstore, and not just because it's less generic than the Borders and B. Daltons dotting the suburbs. Despite its recent downsizing, Joseph-Beth gives plenty of space to local authors, plenty of attention to difficult customers, and enough good books to keep even the crabbiest bibliophile happy.
