Village Square Booksellers, Bellows Falls, VT
This is an excellent guide from Publisher's Weekly, everything you ever wanted to know about booksellers in  the United State. Among other things, many other things, you can find out which state has the most bookstores and which state has the most bookstores per capita. Answers: a tie between Texas and California; and Montana, respectively.

Excellent news: Most states have more traditional bookstores than big-box stores, and in 10 states, the ratio of traditional bookstores to big-box stores was 2:1 or greater. And check out the Queen of Traditional Booksellers: Vermont, where the ratio is 37:1!
