Cute store. I enjoyed visiting there. I had always wanted to go but we were usually rushed for time on our prior visits and so glad I was able to go this time. It has a small but nice selection of books.

This is a great little store! They have a smaller selection, but something for everyone (including children & teems). The one downside is that there are very few places to sit.

Love, love, love this book store! From the themed rooms to the attentive staff to the books to tuck away with a good read, this is the type of store I wish I lived closer to so that I could become a regular. Despite swearing we didn’t need any more books, my husband and I each left with one.

Quaint bookstore that HAD strong potential. We make a point of visiting the best local bookstores in any city we visit. Tattered Cover in Denver. Powell’s Books in Portland. Sundog Books in Seaside FL. This one disappointed. Long hallway with lots of small spaces - though this doesn’t have to be all bad. But the bookshelves were somewhat sparse, maybe less than 75% full. It lacked what we love in a local bookstore - overflowing inventory, staff pics, owner recommendations, “what we are reading”. When we asked the one employee for some ideas more than once he came up empty and directed us to areas which didn’t really have many options. No comfy sitting spaces. The store didn’t suck you in as we expected. My one mission was to leave with an intriguing read for the plane ride home. After an hour, despite full willingness, and eager hopes, we left to return to the hotel empty handed. Would not recommend. Sorry Blue Bicycle.

This bookstore was adorable, well lit, had a reading room, kids room, a teen room. A prominent display of Charleston local authors and a very welcoming atmosphere.They had a nice selection of new and used books. I highly recommend checking out this sweet little bookstore if you're in the area!

From the moment you open the door to this downtown shop, you feel welcome and comfortable.
They carry everything from modern Young Adult fiction, to antique collections that you would be hard pressed to find any place else.
I was there yesterday for a book signing and the staff was helpful, friendly and very welcoming.
There are some narrow spaces that would create minor difficulties for someone in a wheelchair.

I like to visit an independent bookstore when on vacation. They have a great selection and across the street is a vegan cinnamon roll place.

This is an incredible bookstore that has something for everyone. This is where we learned about a young adult book festival that they host every year, and in fact, we went back for that a few months later. Completely worth it.
