There are a few bookstores in Chicago. But there’s not a lot that sell unique and used books, and there’s definitely not many (or any others that I know of, frankly) with a beautiful resident doggo holding down the fort. But that’s not all Uncharted has to offer. The owner will gladly oblige you in conversation and is incredibly friendly- his passion for literature is evident, as is his passion for the arts. My first trip to Uncharted was for a poetry reading and although tight, the space is lovely for it. Located right off the Blue Line, Uncharted is the go-to spot for unique finds and dope poetry.

This is my favorite used bookstore to browse the shelves in. Myopic might have a wider selection, but you can find more books here that you pick out solely for the cover. There's also a good amount of readings that occur on a near weekly basis, bringing in authors regionally and from around the country.
