Marfa Bookstore

I'd never have expected a bookstore like this in Marfa, Texas, population 1,819.

Lots of comfortable reading spots.

The selection of books is sharply eclectic.
You'd never find these children's books in a typical bookstore.


A huge Texas themed collection.

And someone is fond of a certain reclusive Texas writer.

  2. What a great find! I love small, intimate bookstores like this one. They are few and far between, unfortunately!

  3. Looks like a museum rather than bookstore. I love the sitting area!

    1. There was also a huge section of Marfa-created art. Pottery, weaving, and more. It was lovely.

  8. I don't think I've ever seen a book shop quite like this... Love the comfy chair nook!

    1. It also had a whole table of very, very off-the-wall grownup books. I keep up with books, I think, but most of these titles were completely unfamiliar to me. I wish I'd taken a picture of those.

  9. If you want to stay in business today as a book store, you have to be unique, and this is unique!

    1. If you saw Marfa, you'd never guess such an amazing bookstore would exist here.

  11. I misread the heading. I thought it said Mafia Bookstore. I was intrigued. Tee-hee

  12. With such comfortable chairs, I would spend the whole day in that bookstore.

  13. How cool is that? You bought some books right? Obviously I'd never heard of Marfa Texas, so I googled it to see where it was and was surprised that the third google search term would be Marfa Texas Prada! Did you go? It looks fantastic, what a cool little town. Did you stay or were you passing through?

    1. Marfa is twenty miles from Alpine where I stayed this summer for the writers' retreat. Lots of wonderful art people around Marfa, including the Marfa Texas Prada.
