I have traveled the world. Been to small towns, no one has heard of. However, I have NEVER been to a book shop like this one. With its beyond friendly staff, and its loads of games for young ones, toys for teens and books for the older ones, there are so many options in that little shop, I wonder how you wouldn't want to go in. Even if you don't buy anything. Even if you just go in for the fun of looking around. IT WILL BE WORTH IT.

I love books....and I love book stores.....but excluding B&N (which I also love), they're few and far between these days. This is the real deal. Quaint in a quaint town, great selection, comfortable chairs and nice staff. It's worth the ride out to the "country" to see this place. But be sure to buy something.....once these places are gone, they're gone.
