I came across this book store while wandering around in town and ended up spending much more time here than expected. It's a fun store with an INCREDIBLE selection of books. I am a book-a-holic so this store was heaven for me. I enjoyed getting lost in the labyrinth of books and found many treasures. The staff was very knowledgable,... More
