Best bookstore: The Ivy Bookshop

A look at some of the 'Best of Baltimore' winners in the Lifestyle & Shopping category. (Ulysses Muñoz / Baltimore Sun)

In a time when brick-and-mortar bookstores are becoming a rarity, The Ivy Bookshop champions the cause of independent bookstores. Maybe its strength lies in its robust offerings of local authors — such as Wes Moore and former Sun reporters Laura Lippman and Rashod Ollison — or in its attentive staff. Maybe it's the comfy, inviting confines of its Mount Washington digs. Whatever it is, it just works.
