A quaint book store in the center of Madison. The staff is friendly and helpful; as if you're a regular. The selections are well organized. I enjoy reading the handwritten blurbs by the staff under select books. The children look forward to finding their books too. As they walk upstairs they are welcomed with the same hospitality that their parents received downstairs. Get on their mailing list to hear about the many events they're hosting! If you love books you will enjoy RJ Julia's.
This is our local "go to" for books and interesting birthday gifts. My 10 yr old daughter has enjoyed growing up with the children's level, and now into YA. The other day we visited, she sat right down on the floor to read a book about Hedy Lamar, the actress/inventor. We love it here!
