  • If you are a lover of books, this is the place to go but beware you could easily spend all day in here. I went in the other day with some rarer book choices and low and behold they had them. They have...  more »
  • This store is located in a good place at the end of a side street (the one with a wine and specialty oil store on it), but is somewhat hidden unless you're looking for it. You have to believe that it'...  more »
  • I enjoy the atmosphere here and like the location. The book selection is a bit on the liberal side (yes I mean politics) but thats about the only downside to this place. It offers some great books at ...  more »

  • The best local bookstore on earth! They have such great variety and helpful staff. If they don't have the book you're looking for, they will order it for you and let you know when it arrives. The layout of the store is gorgeous, and they have a lot of great gift options as well. Paper Dreams, which is connected to them, is full of awesome local gifts. I always come here when I need something distinctly "Bellingham" to give to people not from the area. And they allow dogs in every area but the cafe!
  • I love going to this bookstore, both of them actually. They always have a great selection and the staff is very helpful. Great recommendations too, everyone I've talked to there is a reader and I've picked up some fantastic books based on those reccomendations.
  • I love classic literature and this place definitely has a ton of it. Dickens, Camus, Wilde, Orwell, even Lovecraft. They have plenty of children's, history, fiction, and also notepads and such to purchase. Loved the multilevel setting to organize the books. Awesome place.
  • Very fun environment for getting connected to local events. Most every new book is available plus several older printings. My only negative is that many new books aren't protected during shipping and are chipped or scuffed by the time they are shelved.
  • Best bookstore for 3 staffers helping to find a book whose title and author you can't remember. Eventually I found it online and they found it in a special display. Great book too - If They Come for Us by Fatimah Asghar.
