Montana: Country Bookshelf


Country Bookshelf is an independent bookstore located in downtown Bozeman, Montana. It’s the largest indie bookstore in Montana, and it's been around since 1957! This bookstore is yet another example of how and why indie bookstores will never die. It’s a bookstore that serves its community with a wide selection of books and when you visit the store, you feel like you’re visiting a place with knowledgeable and helpful booklovers who happen to sell the books, too. 

Amazon can’t do that. Barnes & Noble sells more toys than books these days, know what I mean? I’ve traveled to so many states, and what is amazing is that no matter how different the states and the bookstores are, these local independent bookstores all have one major thing in common. They all clearly serve, reflect, and represent their individual communities.

Amazon ain’t gonna do that, folks.
