This bookstore was huge! So much fun to explore the genres and highlighted/featured authors. There's tables and seating, and even a cafe area that looked chic and delicious. They apparently do tours..... more »
This is a great bookstore that is spacious and feels very unique and independent. It definitely isn't a Barnes and Noble! They have a wall of staff recommendations and also some written throughout the store. They have events with authors downstairs and also in other venues throughout the city. There is a little coffee shop in the back. It's a great selection and everyone is knowledgeable and willing to help you find something! They also have a cute selection of cards, notebooks, locally made gifts pins, and zines.
Large selection of books and even more on their second floor. Quite interesting titles. However the atmosphere didn't feel as welcoming as I thought it would be.... First time there maybe it's just a Sunday evening vibe but.... That's just me.
