Best Indie Bookstore in Detroit 

John K. King Used & Rare Books; 901 W. Lafayette Blvd., Detroit; 313-961-0622

Bookworms are most likely already aware of John K. King Used & Rare Books — for years, the hulking downtown warehouse has been a treasure trove, boasting a collection of “one million books, give or take a dozen” in more than 900 subjects. The store’s hand-painted sign and giant glove (a nod back to its days as a glove factory) are an iconic sight for those taking the freeway downtown, and the store has a reputation the world over. Presiding over the collection is John K. King himself, a man who has been in the used-book business for essentially his entire working life.
