Excellent selction of books from every genre, can be a bit overwhelming and difficult to navigate through. Staff is friendly enough, but the prices tend to be a bit much. Certainly worth checking out.

Spectator has some of the most friendly staff I have ever met. They are excited about reading and books and bring this enthusiasm into the store. This store is long and narrow, if you only look at the new books section in the front, you are missing the meat that is the giant selection of paperbacks in the back half. They carry all genres of books - from the most literary to the trashiest pulp. While their selection is not that great (probably due to their small size), they make up for it by having such a wide variety.

PROS: great staff, wide variety, beautiful cards
CONS: small selection
