Murder by the Book Houston, TX

Tuesday, October 15, 2013

Murder by the Book is a pretty neat independent book store in Houston, TX.   I love to visit new cities and discover cool book locations.  When you first walk in you see that it is not the huge book stores you are probably used to. It is cute and small.  The bookshelves look like they are in someone's home.

I love that along the tops of the bookcases are pictures of all the authors who have ever stopped in for a book signing.  You can tell some of the pictures are really old!

  

On all the bookcases are also a bunch of sticky notes that are all over.  This sticky notes are neat .. they are the staff recommendations! 

 
 Here is one book shelf with tons of potion bottles on it!  It is a little blurry.

If you are in the Houston area this is the place to stop!!  My sister and I loved it sooo much!!  I mean the title of the store should make you want to go there!

  1. I think I've heard of this place before (though I might be thinking of another store with a similar name). I can't think of any reason I'd ever be in Houston... but if I am, I'll definitely stop in!

  2. Ah, so jealous! I have yet to come across an independent bookstore in my area, and believe me-I have looked. I love the sticky note idea, and it's great that they have YA :)

  3. I love small books stores they are so cozy and usually have tons of hidden treasures. We hardly have any where I live. I love this post and I'm digging the Wonder Woman shirt. Thanks for sharing this little book spot.

    1. They were cute... and I love how the notes didn't match. It was like real personal notes someone had written.

  11. OMG. That bookstore is just adorable! I wish I had an indipendent bookstore like that near me. I would so hang out there often! But alas, I am stuck with Books A Million!

    1. Books A Million!! Wow.. I swear you only find those in small towns. The only thing about independent book stores is that they are more expensive then other stores.

  12. Heck yes! Death by The Book! I love cozy little indie bookstores like that. First, great deals. Secondly, the workers are so passionate about their jobs (i.e. BOOKS) and are super nice. I think I will have to put this on my bucket list for the waiting. ;D

    1. It was a great shop downtown Houston. I would've never thought there was a bookstore in the location it was in.

  14. I love MBTB, it is so unique! I wish the location was more convenient to me and they had better parking options, but the inside of the store is awesome and their events are great!
