  • This bookstore is one of a kind. The books are full-priced, but the experience is more important than the shopping. You'll love exploring this place, walking through a tunnel made of books, checking o...  more »
  • In our digital world dominated by online book sales, this is a rarity. It is large, with many “nooks and crannies” and they have many interesting books to browse. It reminds me of of Powell’s in Portl...  more »
  • Both book, see creativity with both book is mind-blowing. Without a doubt one of the sites that you can not miss in there all discs also. If you don't find a book to your liking there, I doubt that it is in another site.

  • A must see if you’re in town. The first floor feels cool and all, but then the upstairs is amazing and it just keeps going and going!! Most of the books that weren’t used were v expensive but the used ones I could find were well priced. A good selection on feminism and history and they even have a rare book annex. Don’t skip the upstairs! It has some awesome stuff and picture moments.
  • This was the cutest little book shop! I loved the outdoor area! The artwork was amazing and they had a large selection of different books to browse. The books were extremely cheap and I was lucky enough to find the exact book I was looking for! Definitely worth a visit just to see how different this book shop is from others, especially if you're like me and enjoy book shopping! I could spend hours here!
  • I've been coming to The Last Book Store for about 5 years now. Weekends attract a lot more people so typically I prefer to go on weekdays. It's a pretty big bookstore and while a lot of books are brand new and full price they also have a lot of used copies that are great steals. Back in high school when we had to read "The Turn of the Screw" I found a used copy for $0.25. Also if you like to collect vinyls they sell them at the bottom level. At the top level they have this really cool tunnel thing made out of book.
  • This place is so great! The bookstore is two stories tall with tons of fun books. The top floor has a variety of little boutique shops. A large room on the top floor has books arranged by color which is a ton of fun to walk around in. Then a room has several foundational-looking settings of books including a tunnel you can walk through and a "window." I could spend hours enjoying the sites, the clientele, and perusing the books. So fun and great photo opportunities!
  • The prices are great. The options ridiculous. I've managed to find obscure and quirky books both used and new. They're genre fiction selections is rich. As well as art. Decor is great. Playful layout. Tourist should take a look here. Love the guests they have over and the topics they cover
