Coral Gables "is one of South Florida's most beautiful and expansive cities, offering everything from museums and playhouses to dining destinations and outdoor hangouts," Miami New Times reported. Among the city's top 10 highlights is Books & Books:
"Contrary to the popular belief that 'print is dead,' Books & Books brings paper back to life. As the Gables' resident bookstore, founded in 1982, the independent shop is the city's main spot for literature, offering everything from new releases to classics, along with a myriad of author events. The shop hosts a different happening nearly every day, bringing authors from near and far to present their works, discuss timely topics, and chat about all things literary. There's also a café inside the store, offering farm-to-table eats for hungry readers, along with monthly gatherings for philosophy buffs and poetry aficionados. Whether you're in the mood to browse, catch a glimpse of your favorite writer, or have a bite to eat, Books & Books covers it."
