  • Love this place. There’s something for everyone here. A great place to spend time and relish in the little delights that make your soul happy.
  • A fantastic bookstore that is unique and a great place to sit and read a book. It’s two floors with the bottom being for children and the top for adults and teens. They usually have bargains going on and you can get some good deals sometime. There are not many bookstores like this one.
  • I have been going to Joseph-Beth since the 80's. It's the best book store I've ever visited. Great staff, great facility, and always changing and improving.
  • What else can be said that hasn't been said already about this place? Joseph Beth is the absolute best! I could live inside of the store, eat my meals at the Bistro, and well, I guess I'd need a place to shower, but I won't take off a star (in my rating) for that. :) I've been a fan of this place, since back in the days when they were on the other end of the mall. Please take advantage of their membership option, this is an absolute no-brainer. It pays for itself in no time, plus you get lots of extras that come along with it. If I had one complaint, I wish their Edgar Allan Poe selection was a bit larger. I mean, he is one of the greatest writers of all time, and a lot of writers can thank him for opening the door to that particular genre. Yep, I'm an E.A. Poe fanatic, so it's disappointing sometimes to only find the same two or three books over and over again. I'd also like to see the signed books consolidated into their own little section, similar to BAM, or some other indie bookstores that I've been to, but now I'm nitpicking an otherwise perfect bookstore. Anyway, this place has my heart and I'll always support it.
  • Big place didn't get to see all was there for sis dinner wedding..
