A huge collection of over 70,000 new and used volumes featuring variety of fiction, literature, poetry, and children’s books.

Chicago residents are fortunate to live in a city with so many independent bookstores, and After Words in the Near North Side is one of the city’s biggest and best-loved independent book sellers. With over 70,000 new and used books spread over two floors, it’s easy to spend a few hours browsing through After Words’ selection of books in all genres, ranging from literature to biography and from art to children’s books.

After Words' space itself is beautiful, and it features hardwood floors and wide aisles, with natural light pouring into the street level windows. The store is also a popular venue for various public lectures, author readings, and private parties. The downstairs area is reserved for used books, and is a popular place for bibliophiles to spend a lunch break or weekend afternoon. If this shop doesn’t have the book you want, just let the staff know and they’ll have it within days.
