Local Bookstores for Summer Reading

We get it—it’s hot! The temptation is probably really strong right about now to flop onto your couch at your Canvas Valley Forge apartment, flip on the TV and enjoy the comfort of your air conditioning! That’s all well and good, but at some point, your summer leisure time should actually have you enjoying the great outdoors!

Even if baking on the beach isn’t your thing and if you’re not into the crowds and costs of the water park, you can still stretch your legs and get some fresh air and relaxation. What better way to recharge your batteries than with a good book? Whether you’re hiding out on the beach under an umbrella or kicking back in Valley Forge National Historical Park, losing yourself inside the pages of a book can help you push the reset the button and make the most out of the lazy days of summer.

Here are a few local spots where you can get your hands on everything from classics to the latest best sellers:
Main Point Books: This independent bookstore is in its fifth year in Wayne, about three miles from your Canvas Valley Forge apartment. The shop sells a wide range of titles to suit your tastes, along with audiobooks and other products. You can attend book signings and book groups or, if you’d rather stay home this summer, sign up for its mail-order program, where a new book will be delivered to you monthly by mail.

Cabrini University Campus Store: You don’t have to be a student to benefit from the on-campus bookstore at Cabrini University, about three miles from your Canvas Valley Forge apartment. Beyond Cabrini textbooks and apparel, the shop also carries the latest best-sellers and other reading materials sure to help you while away a leisurely summer day.

Paperback Trader: If you don’t want to spend too much on your summer reading, make sure to visit Paperback Trader in Blue Bell, about 20 minutes from your Canvas Valley Forge apartment. Here you’ll find an impressive selection of deeply discounted paperback books, from thrillers to poetry and everything in between!
