I have lived in Madison for 4 years. I love this bookstore. The little recommendation cards from the staff that are near the books are a wonderful touch. It also has a little cafe that is fun to eat at.

Julia's has a lovely, open, welcoming feel. I love bookshops in general and this is certainly an excellent example of that with a great range of books and knowledgable staff. I think what makes RJ Julia's a great place to visit is the combination of...More

They have a great selection of books and can get whatever you might be looking for if they don't have it on hand. Their cafe is actually very good as well, certainly worth checking out when you're there.
