Amazon Books Reviews
從網路的世界走入真實的體驗，大概就是這種感覺，實體上有溫暖的空間，令人放鬆的氣氛，但是展示方法與結帳方式與傳統還是不同，不放價格牌，上架最流行的品項，永遠正面陳列，是不是像極了網路科技公司的做法！ more »From the world of the Internet into the real experience, it is probably this feeling, the reality of the warm space, the relaxed atmosphere, but the display method and the way of the account and the tradition is still different, do not put the price card, on the shelves of the most popular items, forever positive Chen, is not like the approach of the network technology company!

I just love book stores. This has a Great selection. Awesome prices. Staff knows their stuff. They are helpful without being pushy. Clean well thought out layout for the store
The store was nice, clean and organized. I just wish there was more employees to help. From what I saw there was only 1 employee at the register. No one greeted us or asked if we needed help.
