Nice selection of books of local interest plus a lot of other things. We got one book about Shenandoah National Park, a novel, and a couple of random nonfiction books. A cat was hanging out in one of the rooms but he stayed where he...More

A great place to browse and find that prize book or video. Reasonable prices. Helpful and Friendly service. And the cats lounging among the books are no extra cost. We visit at least once a month.

This book store has been in Front Royal many years. It is small and jam packed inside. Half is dedicated to new books and half to used books. They are willing to order any book not in the store.
