Bookstore Spotlight- Schuler Books



Schuler Books is an independent bookstore chain. They are very large and well stocked, with a selection every bit as good as a national chain. Schuler's is a lot like Barnes & Noble- they carry just about everything. I've been to two of their three locations and it's a very relaxing way to spend some time and explore books. They also have cafes in their stores, and a music section as well. They have a vert active author event schedule, and also host game groups and writers groups.

Schuler's is a great place to spend some time if you're a booklover. Not only are they very well stocked, but the stores are large, the cafes are nice and they have a good childrens section. The cafe serves sandwiches, paninis as well as the usual assortment of snacks, coffee, Italian sodas and all that.



Here's a link to the cafe menu. Soups, quiches... good stuff. Schuler's also has an extensive used book section, and even print on demand with the Espresso Book Machine(you can read all about it here). Book club members get 20% off the club selection, and the have a great variety of author events and monthly get togethers, including Italian and Japanese conversation group meetings.




Here's a cool video featuring Schuler's.

  1. I've been to Schuler's several times, but the one by us is one that got shut down :( It was a great bookstore and I was sad to see it go!

  2. You are lucky to have this small chain near you. I like the welcoming rack upon rack of books outside calling to book lovers. And the cafe is well set-up and spacious. Enjoy visiting there.

  6. I love Schulers! I always go to the Lansing store for signings but I've never been to the Okemos one for some reason (?). I was shocked that they bought Nicola's but I knew he was selling his store to retire and it was better to Schuler's than a big box store (or closing!). I go to Nicola's for Kim Harrison book signings. I'm curious what changes were made at Nicola's now...

  7. This bookstore looks great! Just the fact they did that video tells me they must be a lot of fun too :) Espresso Book Machine thingy looks so cool! I haven't found a good indie bookstore around me yet, but your posts have motivated me to start looking for them!
