Love My Indie is a feature where fellow bloggers, readers, and authors tell me about their favorite independent bookstores. I love the feeling I get when I go into an independent bookstore - like it is filled with hidden treasures just waiting for me to find them.
Showing some Indie Love today is:

Hope you don’t mind but I’m going to cheat a bit and write about my favorite comic book store today. Midtown Comics in NYC is absolutely the best place for a geek like me to spend time browsing around. There are a few locations around the city, but the one I like the best is the one that’s on 40th Street and 7th Avenue with superheroes in the big purple windows and the giant white Spiderman sign on the corner of Times Square. I grew up in the country but feel so lucky that I live close to the city now. When I walk into Times Square I feel like I’m entering another world and I love the fact that Spiderman is sitting right there on the corner of 7th watching over the crowd where he belongs.

Thank you Laurie for sharing your favorite comic book store. It sounds like a comic book lover's dream. The next time I am in NYC, I'll have to stop in and see what it is all about. I'll make sure to allow for a long visit because it sounds overwhelming and I want to see it all!
