  • This unique bookstore was once a leather glove factory and is now home to 4 full floors of used and rare books. Books are grouped by subject. Maps are available at the counter and friendly and helpful...  more »
  • Really cool place. Loved the HUGE selection of books. I would go there again just for the yummy old book smell. Unfortunately there are no elevators or ramps, so this is difficult for less able-bodied...  more »
  • With four floors of books, you're almost certain to find what you need. Staff more than ready to help guide you through the maze of books.  more »

  • Don't ever let John King touch a valuable book of yours: He may damage it, like he damaged mine. Took a first edition Mark Twain book to the store to see if King wanted to buy it. He handled it very roughly, and broke the binding -- in my opinion, deliberately. Then he acted like it was already broken. A first-class jerk. I mean, who would do that? He can not be trusted with other people's property. Beware.
  • This place has books galore on many subjects, friendly and helpful staff. I do wish they had more recent computer and engineering books, but despite that they have an impressive WW2 and Civil War collection. They also have a lot to offer for fiction aficionados.
  • What a wonderful place! Four big floors of used books, plus some magazines, posters, games, audio books, etc thrown in. If you love books, then you must visit. It's a shabby place, but that's part of the charm.
  • I just went here today and it was magical. It made me feel nice to put it simply. Although the bookcases sort of give you little room at times it didn't hinder my experience in the slightest. I highly recommend going! ♡ ☆I hope you have a lovely day stranger☆
  • Top notch good books and greater prices not easy to find friendly service today but here it is still used! It's just really great.
