This is the best bookstore I have been to in many years. They have a very knowledgeable and friendly staff. I love the little book reviews and staff pick information they put on random books. I did not need any assistance, but I listened to a very well read and knowledgeable staff direct customers patiently and well informed.

They have McSweeney's. They mix old and new books on the shelves. Their prices are reasonable. They have sections on all sorts of alternative lifestyles. The magazines they offer are generally thoughtful. They've got tons of New Yorker merchandise. They have various satirical and generally off-color books. In short, they're pretty cool.

Great selection of new and used books. A place you can get lost a good way!

I called to inquire about a book. Someone answered the phone and was very cheerful. I gave my request. Suddenly, after I gave my request, he cut me off, said, We're not open. We're just opening the doors. Can you call back at 9:00. First of all, it was five minutes to 9:00 when I called. Second of all, if you're not open, there are a couple other ways to handle this. You can either not answer the phone if you don't want to take the customer calls until 9:00. Or, you can take my request and call me back at 9:00 since you already answered the phone. Instead, he abruptly said, Call back at 9:00 after I'd already given my request. The better thing to do would have been to jot down my request and then call me back. I won't use them again. Hello Amazon....

An icon in the area. Wonderful place to get coffee and just relax while reading.

This place is terrible. I was going to attend a book signing and when my girlfriend called for more information, they required us to purchase the book from them. I understand this concept, as a lot of places do this. However we had already purchased our copy. The manager cut us off before we could even explain the situation and was extremely rude. We've been in a time or two before and had bad experiences with staff who really don't care about you, overpriced books, and mediocre food. We will not go back to any Third Place Books again.
