  • Always a fine, heartwarming experience to visit Jim and peruse his store and wander, and wonder about his book store. Genuine. Varied. Educational. A place where I always feel at home. Steve Edmondson. You will also know the feeling of peace among his books.
  • Wonderful place. I felt like I was going to open “The Book of American Clocks” and find a way to go back in time. The owner is very friendly. If you like bookstores, definitely go.
