Freshly Toasted Books at The Empty Bottle's Pop-Up Book Fair

Toasty books via Quimby's

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

In conjunction with Chicago Writers House and the new well-curated local publication, The Chicagoan, Curbside Splendor Publishing presents a pop-up book fair at everybody's favorite bar for shopping events, The Empty Bottle. YAY! That's right, some of Chicago's finest independent publishers are taking over the bar with some stellar stores like Quimby's Bookstore, selling good reads to great people like yourself ranging from hard-covers to zines written and published by locals.

Here are the list of spectacular book far participants bullet-pointed out for your ease and clickable convenience... also because it's the end of a hump day and who the hell cares.
