I'm 15 and I love books. This place is the cutest place to sit down with little kids and read. It's a nice happy atmosphere and Otis not to pricey!

I don't know how many travelers actually get bookstore recommendations from TripAdvisor, but in case anyone is looking for an independent bookstore in Salt Lake City, I can recommend The King's English without reservation. Sure, there's a Barnes & Noble a short drive away, but...More
