Get Your Read On at Joseph Fox Bookshop

In honor of Banned Books Week (September 23-30th) and for all you literary junkies, I decided it’s the perfect time to write about the very picturesque Center City, independent book store, Joseph Fox Bookshop. A small book store, with a prominent focus on art and architecture, the Joseph Fox Bookshop is a haven for anybody who could spend their entire lunch hour (and then some) tucked in the corner of a cozy shop flipping through books. The staff is helpful without being the slightest bit pushy. Anything not available in the store can be ordered. There is even an impressive children’s section nook in the back. The shop also sponsors special events like readings, signings and lectures. Do your part people about Philly, and support the little guy. (You can get your frappuccino and In Touch Magazine on the walk home.)
