  • This was a nice surprise considering we just drove 6 hours through the desert to a tiny dot of a town near the Mexico border. It's did have a sort of 'Museum Bookstore' vibe. I suppose that IS the app...  more »
  • Omg- so grateful for this spot of culture! Lots of beautiful art books but lots of books by local artists and writers, so I bought one of those. It's not a cheap shop but I wasn't expecting it to be. ...  more »
  • Was expecting more. Seemed like an art museum/gift shop. Trying to be too hipster maybe? There were a few books but not a great selection.  more »

  • A small selection of primarily art books, laid out in a contemporary space adjacent to the hotel lobby. Indifferent staff member. I'm sure this is a thrilling place if you're into art (Donald Judd, etc.), but otherwise no need to visit. My wife and I took our less-intellectual fiction books and read them in the hotel lobby where they have some comfy chairs.
  • Fantastic and eclectic selection of art books and esoteric fiction. The arrangement of the books was an art exhibit unto itself. Small offering of art, jewelry, and clothing items.
  • I stop here every time I go out to West Texas, hands down great selection of just about everything - if you want mainstream or fluff go someplace else though - this is for "readers". Poetry selections are fantastic. Just a nice place to stop, collect your intellect and come out with something to make you go "Hmmmm." That's what books are about.
  • Very nice little shop.
  • Really lovely bookstore - there's a great selection of books and a small art gallery connected. The staff are super nice and it's fun just to look at the books and hang out!
