  • Great place, beautiful interior, and friendly staff. Has lots of classics and aesthetically pleasing collection. It's clean and cozy, but just a little too pricey for me.
  • A tiny bookshop on Pirate's Alley big on literature. Check out the plaque outside honoring Wm Faulkner. Owner Joe DeSalvo and literary expert and manager Joanne Sealy are great.
  • One of 4 or 5 small bookstores in the Quarter. This one is my favorite. Friendly staff, small but excellent selection of books.
  • I never caught the owner's name but she was very friendly and made some great recommendations to my wife on what to get based off of her likes. Really cool store and tucked away in an alley off Royal. Highly recommend stopping in here whether on vacation or local.
  • This is probably my favorite bookstore of all time! The woman who runs it ( Suzanne?-please forgive me-I always forget names) is a devoted reader. Every so often I go in the store and ask her to recommend her favorite reads. She loads me up with as many as I desire. I am NEVER disappointed. The bookstore is gorgeous, with handpicked books that appeal to many different tastes. It is the "Magic Emporium" of books for me-always something unique, captivating and beautiful waiting to be discovered. Ask the "blonde woman"-she knows her books!
