I always Visit when I am in town or passing through. It is a wonderful shop to browse and find stuff that you most likely do not see in your chain stores.

This is what a book store should be! Awesome selection, helpful & knowledgeable staff, relaxed atmosphere. You will find a book you love at this place (my wife did say the romance section was lacking- but I love history, fiction and cookbooks)

An incredible bookstore with quiet nooks and fun areas of sensible “other items” to buy. All based around the love of reading. You’ll get lost for a couple hours.
