Very well-organized used book store. Every nook and cranny is filled with books, and there are many gems to be found. The prices are reasonable, and the owner is very knowledgeable, friendly, and interesting to talk to.

This used bookstore was dreamy--small enough to not feel overwhelming, but still absolutely chock-full of treasures, including many old editions. Homemade treats and coffee are for sale. I stopped in three separate times during a week-long stay in South Haven, and I will definitely be...More

You may think the paper page is gone! Not so! Make sure you visit this grand store and parouse! Don't forget to pet the two Standard Poodles that enjoy the freedom to rome the store and grounds! Most civilized!

Decent book selection since it is small. I always find something. The owners are very friendly, and their dogs are too. Recommended stop for book lovers. Great kids nook with neat Michigan themed books you don't see in other places.

A book buyer's dream. Great selection and the books are well organized. Prices are decent. Plan to spend more than just a few minutes in this place. And be sure to say "Hi" to resident dogs, Booker and Dewey (as in the Decimal System).

We were greeted by the owners and their two dogs. Everyone was friendly and welcoming. I found a good selection of nautical fiction at very reasonable prices, and my wife, daughter, and granddaughters came away with great holiday reading during our two visits.
