Reminds you of times gone by. A great bookstore with terrific folks to help recommend books for infants, travel, leisure reading. Hope trips place never closes. Drop by and buy real books you can hold in your hands and turn the pages!

On the Avenue and looking for a great book browsing experience? Then Diane's is for you! Remember the aroma of piles upon piles of new books? Then your olfactory glands will in overdrive. The selection is impeccable, young, old, or in between ... There's something for everyone. Can't find it? Then Diane will order for you.

I just wondered in here and while looking around for something to read. I was surprised at the variety since the place is small. I'm into spy and espionage stuff right now. Didn't find the one I was looking for, but got a nice recommendation. Great place to find something to read. Enjoy!

Although you pay full price here, the service is amazing. I wanted a book as a gift that was just published. No problem. They had it, gift wrapped it and I was on my way. Wonderful resource.

Whether you like fiction, non-fiction, need children's books, doesn't matter. This store has it, and the people there to help are just so good, and so nice. Never had anything but good, fun, enriching experiences there.

You will love it the moment you walk in. This is what a true bookstore is. The staff is very knowledgeable and can help with what ever you are looking for. Great selection!
