  • An amazing place to browse if you love books. There is no shortage of rare titles and first editions, and treasures can be found on every shelf. I could spend a lifetime there.

Unlike many other well-known used book shops, Second Story does not have a large selections of inexpensive paperbacks and cheap later editions for those who are just looking for a good read.
  • It may just be the best book store in the world! Each visit produces new delights - books that one didn’t know existed. This ability to surprise, lost in retail bookstores today, is its central attraction
