  • Where do you start in a 4 story used book store packed to the rafters? You could stay there from open until close and still not browse every area that you're interested in unless you have a very limit...  more »

  • 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.
  • 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...
  • 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.
  • Four floors of used books? Is there anything else to say? The staff was super friendly and helped us get around with a stroller. Can't wait to go back and wander the isles.
  • It might not have everything that you want, but it will definitely have something. It's great to spend a whole day here.
