“Nice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

The book shop had a booth set up at a conference I attended selling one of the keynote speaker's books. Price was cheaper than listed on the book, and the transaction processed smoothly at the booth.

“Best Bookstore Ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2014

Oh my gosh, I spent about 4 hours in this little gem, and could have spent many more. This is just what an independent book store should be - all books lovingly arranged by topics, tons of "specialty" books, places to sit and flip through some of the amazing offerings, and more author-signed books than I've ever seen. Honestly, every single author alive today seems to have had a signing at this darling store, and it's easy to see why.

“Nice selection - many signed editions”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2014

Walking in here, I felt like the owner hand chose every book on the shelves as if he were stocking his own personal library. Wonderful selection of New Orleans books and a wide variety of signed editions. A nice, quiet spot to browse for an hour and pick up something a little different.

“Be sure to visit here when in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013

Great local book store with friendly staff and excellent selection of books about New Orleans as well as books by local authors. A great place to pick up something to read when resting up from your New Orleans adventures. Take the book to Still Perkin' coffee shop next door, and have coffee or tea while you read.
