I love going here, they always have neat and interesting old books. I personally go for the photography books; not only do they have great out-of-print art books, but lots of how-to's about film processing and printing, as well as essays by master photographers.

I realize there are always a few people at any establishment that can ruin a costumers experience. I, luckily, had a good experience. I ordered "Rendezvous with Rama" off of a book seller on amazon for $4. Problem was that Fedex lost it. I checked out this store and I found it for $2 and some change. The gentleman that was there when I purchased it was more than helpful. I will be back for any books I am looking for in the future.

Left me alone when I walked in, I always like that. My kids set themselves up to have their mother take a picture of them in a "real" bookstore. The huge wall of books intimidated the kids. Might have to come back for just them. Not the cleanest, but no dust. I could have spent some real time here.

A great place in the city to get lost in on a rainy Sunday. Don't go here looking for a specific book, as you'll be disappointed. But definitely come here if you're just looking. A great place to find hidden gems, inspiration, and surprises.

I went to this store yesterday just to simply pick up a book that I was told over the phone was definitely there. That is all I wanted to do,simple right?. Well when I arrived I was told the girl that I spoke to didn't exist b/c there aren't any girls working there or the girl that was there visiting may have picked the phone, which she wasn't supposed to do,HUH?!! What!! I was told over the phone that this store was in old city, they closed at 10pm,and the book I was looking for was upstairs.They still proceeded to tell me I had the wrong store! I've never been to this store in my life. How would I know all of this information about this place if I didn't speak to someone that worked there!!!! To make a long story short,after all the bickering,sarcasm, and crazy eyes back and forth where was the book!!! Well well surprise surprise it was upstairs I wasn't crazy after all. The ghost I spoke to on the phone was right! Please don't go to this store. BAD CUSTOMER SERVICE AND DRAMA OMG all I wanted to do was buy a book can you imagine!
