  • Cute bookstore lots of selection and nice tables of bestseller, editors choice, etc. Okay prices (inline with physical bookstores RIP Barnes and Noble). Good loyalty system. Would recommend a visit next time you're looking for a good read.
  • Awesome shop to browse around. Books are not sold at “deal” prices — given that, I’d suggest visiting and making an experience out of it! Definitely buy something, but don’t rush. It’s cheaper to get books elsewhere if you’re not looking to spend some time and enjoy yourself.
