“It does what local book stores do so well”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

I go out of my way to patronize this store. It has a good selection, b ut lots of stores do that. What it adds, I think, is the love of literature. It sponsors Valleywide book club meetings, featuring a local author, book discussion, and questions and answers wit h the author. Wonderful.

“A quaint little book store.”
Reviewed June 6, 2014 via mobile

This a small book store jam packed with stationary, cards, pens, gifts, and-you guessed it- books. There are best sellers and some unusual choices.It takes me back to the small town book store before Barnes and Noble. It is worthwhile if yiu like stationary and books. I forgot to mention a few places to sit and review the merchandise. No coffee though, if that is what you are used to.

“Too fixated on too little”
Reviewed February 27, 2014

For such a big space they had surprisingly little. There selection was absolutely terrible. Almost as if they raided an elementary school library and filled in the extra space with pop culture best sellers. This is a book store for a mom who wants an easy read while on vacation with her brood. Not a place for anything academic or informative. You even feel like your supposed to get stamped like at Chuck E. Cheese's once you go in. They over cater to too few.

“Poor selection”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

It was a cute little place, but the emphasis on little. We were looking for books on trees and their selection was pretty minimal (they did have mushroom and bird books)

Books a Million had a much better selection, even though the store wasn't that much bigger.
