Great book store!

This is one of the best stocked up to date book stores you will ever have the chance to visit while in town. Plan on a short visit and you will probably decide to stay an hour!

I've been to RJ Julia's a few times, but this time was awesome. They have a huge selection of books, old and new. They have a cool little bistro/cafe off to the side which has meals/coffee/tea, etc. that are all reasonably priced. It has a cozy atmosphere, and friendly staff. Check it out if you're ever in Madison.

This is a not to miss. This book store is an excellent source for outstanding customer service, selection of books and a sense of pride not found in large scale book stores. They have multiple book clubs, classes and recommendations of reading material second to none. A not to miss.

Great selection, not overdone. Staff selections noted and sales people very knowledgable about the latest and curiosity seekers. Lots of regular customers browsing, or stopping in for a cup of coffee a d quick bite to eat.

When I first went into this bookstore shortly after it first opened I loved the dark wood of the book shelves; it made the bookstore feel cozy and warm. They have such a great selection of books for everyone. They also carry games, cards and gifts of all sorts. I have been to lectures on the second floor. It's an... More

Always have the current best sellers as well as harder to find items, coffee table books, small gifts,and a nice children's section upstairs.. It's very well organized so it's easy to find what you're... More

We have a excellent school system and a local population that puts together some of the best events ever. But the... More

Don't stop at the rest stop, the subway, or the Dunkin if you need to pop off I-95 for a break. Come here for coffee and sandwiches on the back patio. Dogs are welcome, great service and food, and you can pick up a new book while you're here. They have takeout too. Park on the Main Street or swing... More
