Book lovers will want to keep an eye on this.

In a recent interview with The Palm Beach Post, West Palm Beach’s Downtown Development Authority Executive Director Raphael Clemente said the DDA is trying to lure Books & Books to the 200 block of Clematis Street.

The independent bookstore in Miami-Dade County is a popular spot to browse and linger over the written word. Locations are in Coral Gables, Miami Beach and Bal Harbour Shops.

“We’ve met with them and we’d love to have them in West Palm Beach,” Clemente said.

Clemente said the owner is weighing the idea, which first was broached about three months ago, but no decision has yet been reached.
