A wonderful spot to browse for something to read. Hard to do in this day and age. Plus the owners Nick and Maria seem to have read all the books so it can lead to some very wonderful discussions.

Nick and Mariah have been our booksellers and friends for many many years. This is an excellent bookstore as well as nice place to spend a few hours. Good place, good people, lots of knowledge of books. Can't do better than this anywhere.

Great for browsing, excellent selection and very helpful and knowledgable staff. Don't see what you want- they will order it for you (no obligation to purchase). Trust me- you will feel really good handing over your money to this local book store.
