“We started with a very simple idea: open an independent bookstore and event space that reflects and supports the community… A year later, A Novel Idea opened.”
At A Novel Idea we believe in shopping small, not just because we're a small business, but because there are so many talented artisans in the Philadelphia area. One way we shop small is through our dedication to promoting and selling books by local authors and small presses. Check out our featured small presses!more
