Chop Suey Books & Fountain Bookstore Inc.

Earlier this week I made a trip to Richmond VA to visit a couple of book stores. A 2-hour road trip for some books? Yes. Ok, to be fair, some autographed books. Plus, I mean I love independent book stores! The two book shops I visited were Chop Suey Books & Fountain Bookstore Inc. Each one has it’s own vibe and I love both of them dearly. I hope I am able to make at least one more trip out this summer (probably not to buy books, but still). I’d love to vlog the bookstores and share them on my YouTube channel because they are so darn aesthetic. We’ll see what happens.

I got quite a few books while in Richmond. Many more than I was expecting. I went to Chop Suey to get an autographed copy of Cold Summer by Gwen Cole. Remember my Waiting for Wednesday post for Cold Summer? Now I had the chance to get a copy from the book store that hosted her release party. Not as fun as being there on release day (if I am honest) but I still walked outta there completely buzzed.

I headed to Fountain Bookstore Inc. because it is known to carry autographed Maggie Stiefvater books. I did not have a specific book in mind I just knew I wanted one. I wasn’t going to be picky. Then I got there and saw at least two I wanted, but ended up settling on just one. #proudmoment

What I got:

Chop Suey Books

  • Cold Summer by Gwen Cole (autographed!)
  • City of Saints & Thieves by Natalie C. Anderson
  • We Should All Be Feminists by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
  • Philadelphia by Gina Myers
  • Blind Date with a Book (see pictured above)

Fountain Bookstore Inc.

  • Forever by Maggie Stiefvater (autographed!)
  • Our Dark Duet by Victoria Schwab
  • Vincent and Theo: The Van Gogh Brothers by Deborah Heiligman (which I also have done a Waiting for Wednesday post for)

If you’re ever in the Richmond VA area I recommend stopping by each of these stores. You never know what treasure awaits you.
