In addition to increasing your sense of relaxation, reading can also increase your creativity and imagination. Whether you enjoy fiction or nonfiction, you can find your next great read at one of these independent bookstores near our Conshohocken apartments:


Head House was established on the belief that no community is complete without the exchange of ideas that only an independent bookstore can offer. It's open daily and is recognized as "Best Bookstore" by both Philadelphia Style and Philadelphia Magazine. The selection features nearly all genres, and the staff helps readers find their new favorite authors. Head House also offers fun events such as book signings and clubs.


When Joseph Fox opened in 1951, it only sold fine architecture books. Today, it stocks all genres with an emphasis on trade fiction and nonfiction. The shop boasts a 4.5-star rating on Yelp for its selection, friendly service, and cozy setting. Some of the books are signed, which make great gifts for book lovers. Throughout the year, Joseph Fox also hosts author events for the Free Library of Philadelphia series
