    I love this wonderful used book (and sheet music) store! First, it’s a "real booklover's bookstore," with the books carefully and lovingly selected by proprietor Keith Peterson. (Hence, I presume, the store's name: Selected Works!)

    Second, the store's selection is amazing -- especially its used sheet music and its books in lots of areas, including the performing arts, dance, plays, literary fiction and poetry.

    Third, the store's setting is so much more conducive to booklovers than its previous location. It now has breathtaking views of the Grant Park gardens, natural light streaming in, and charming little rooms with welcoming chairs to sit in and browse.

    The Fine Arts Building itself, which has been an artists' colony in the Loop for over a century, houses lots of other fascinating (mostly arts-related) businesses, making it THE perfect setting for this wonderful bookstore. So plan to spend time in the other stores and galleries, too.

    The one imperfect part is that Selected Works is located on the 2nd floor, so lots of people don't know it's here! (It's an elevator building, so it's very accessible!)

    Selected Works is open every day –- weekdays until 8pm.

    If this sounds like an ad, it was written by someone who cares about books and music -- and about the Selected Works Book and Sheet Music Store!

    It's good.... you have to file through stacks of sheet music if that's what you're there for though (no filing system)
