  • I'm not sure why the other reviewers had such a bad experience, but the selection of books is wonderful (and they're very well classified), the prices are reasonable, the employees are friendly, and the bathrooms are clean (although frankly, I don't go to a bookstore for the bathrooms).

  • huge place, lots of finds.
