  • Love this store. One of the last bastions for book lovers (apart from Barnes and Nobles and some old bookstores, its literally a ghost town now). I don't know what their magic is, but the last time I visited the store was brimming with people. I hope they can keep it going and keep the art of readings alive for many years to come.
  • I recently read a book available at Vroman's bookstore. No Ordinary Season written by James Jacobs is a great teen novel. I love the characters in his book, it shows the trials students go through in high school and the way they sometimes get resolved. No Ordinary Season takes place in a small town in Indiana and revolves around the cross country team and their dedication to the coach and the sport. It would be a great sunmer read.
  • I love Vroman's! From my purchase of "One Hundred Trails of the San Gabriels" my first weekend here many years ago, to my annual calendar purchases from their amazing selection, to awesome book signings oh, and don't forget the great collection of cool stuff! Vroman's is a great place to shop!
  • I've been to Vroman's a couple of times and find their assortment of cards to be wonderful! They have an extensive genre of books and other goodies. Certainly Vroman's Bookstore is a worthy place to visit and explore.
  • This place will surprise you. I have found some great gems here. I bought my summer reads here, I have already read 2, great books.. I will be back.
