  • On the street with its fashionable shops, suddenly came to the corner like a Jimbo-Cho, overwhelmed by the grandeur of the old brick. People who have seen the book in this space, and bought a book here right now no matter how good has become would would fancy. The intellectual power, I can get.

  • I wish we could have spent a whole day here! I found a book here that I've been searching everywhere for months! Very reasonable prices, and just so many, many books! 
  • I went there today for an "appraisal" on a book I own. The book is a rare first edition, and retails on Baumans website for thousands of dollars. They took my book and told me they could give me $300 for it. The book is titled "How to trade in stocks" by Jesse Livermore and is very rare. Aside from trying to rip me off the book store was very pleasant, and quaint. It may be a nice place to buy books but you've been warned about selling them to the store.

  • This is a two part bookstore with an outdoor bargain section and an indoor 2 floor bookstore with aisles clearly marked and organized. They have everything from childrens to hobbies. Don't expect to find new bookcase books as this is a very used bookstore but you will come across gems.
  • More casual then Commonwealth Books, and a larger selection. Great place to spend an afternoon exploring for all kinds of finds. I'm pretty fond of the vintage book on North American skiing I found here.
  • I love this place. I can spend hours navigating the shelves... Some very good bargains await every time I go.
  • Best book store in the country whether you want more than you can carry for ten bucks or that super rare first edition. Bar none when it comes to history books. Check out this historical book store.
