  • Awesome find right across from the Greyhound station. Layover? Early for your bus? Check it out, you'll be glad you did! Even libraries don't have that same wonderful aroma anymore...
  • Outstanding selection of books, towering shelves of amazing media with extremely helpful staff. Absolute must visit for all lovers of the written word. Be prepared for a long trip, there's 4 floors of awesome.
  • Excellent bookstore, awesome atmosphere, huge selection. The prices aren't always explicit, and it can be a little hard to find things, but the journey is well worth it. And the staff is very friendly as well.
  • This is a treasure... So many out of print, and rare books here it's unbelievable... Probably the second best bookstore in the country, and the prices are darn cheap, I wish I lived closer, do I can come here more often. Disclaimer: you can spend your life away here, This place is very addictive, especially when a lot of the books here are so rare that you don't know when you will have another Chance to leaf through them.
  • A wonderful place stuffed to the rafters with many good finds in books.
