I'd say it's the highlight of the town. From the outside, the building itself looks like it could collapse at any moment. Inside (and quite structurally-sound), it is a well-organized local...

I would still be lost in the stacks if I hadn't been dragged out... probably the best book store I've ever seen and I've seen a lot... And the fact that the cat seems to be in charge, makes it even better.
They have something for everyone. Bonus: cute bookstore cats and great stickers of a bookstore cat and various art. My entire family very easily found books that fit our very different interests. There is even a section for games on older consoles like ps2 and ps3.
