If you have a favorite independent bookstore, Dwell magazine wants to know about it.
The lifestyle magazine has a nationwide map that it hopes will be "the biggest, most bibliographic map of independent bookstores in the United States." Launched last year, its ever-growing list includes more than 100 bookstores.
Not every state is yet represented; Arkansas, North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana, Wyoming and Nevada are absent. Alaska has a few, but Hawaii does not.
The list includes nationally known bookstores such as Powell's in Portland, Ore., Tattered Cover in Denver and Book People in Austin, Texas. Parnassus Books in Nashville, which Ann Patchett opened because the city had lost almost all of its bookstores, is on the map.
