Great selection of unique items. Not just a bookstore; you need to take your time to see everything or you may miss what may be the perfect gift. There is a quaint coffee shop in the back of the store.

My first time at the book store, we went for a John Grisham book signing and everything was flasless. Huge selection of books and a snug little cafe in the back with outdoor or indoor dinning.

If in the area RJ is a must. Books are well displayed, with staff recommendations highlighted on comment cards. Staff is also very helpful. The cafe is a great spot for small bite/coffee or lunch. I especially like the outdoor patio when it is open.
