Nothing cold and clinical about this book shop. Once inside the doors, you are surrounded by the vibrations of cerebral adventure! Books are high, books are low, books are all around you. Every nook and cranny pulses with books of all sizes, shapes and colors....More

They have a great selection of local books at Bookworks. They have events with authors all the time. It is a living reflection of what readers want. The sales people know books. Hats off to Danielle and Wyatt in addition to all the staff.

We stopped in here while visiting family in Albuquerque, it is a fantastic, independent book store. There is quite a bit of variety considering the size/location, and the staff is very friendly. Highly recommend stopping by.

Don't miss this wonderful store, both for books, but also the best cards, gifts, etc. it is in a very hip shopping center with other great stores and an outdoorsy crowd at the Flying Star restaurant.

Bookworks is not owned and operated by a corporation. What usually comes along with that is that sometimes the book I'm seeking will not be on their shelves, but so what? They'll order it if I want them to. B&N didn't always have the book...More
