Now I am not a cat fan having a horrid allergy to the ceatures but upon entering this store I was struck with the uniqueness not just of the store but of the cat as well! OK, I know the cat isn't a reason to visit a bookstore but the personality and atmosphere has been brightened due to the cat so I felt it deserved some recognition!

This store is full of books...but it isn't the amount that is amazing it is the variety! I have a theory that desite your particular area of stufy or hobby, all you have to do is ask here and the book will either appear OR the competent staff will find a way to acquire it for you! And if the customer service isn't enough for you then consider the cat.....we all know cats are a good judge of character and this one loves the place! What more do you want!?!....;-)

So, if you are looking for a place with style and personality, look no further! This is place for you....find the nearest place to park, plug the meter and come on in....you're going to like this place....I sure do!

PROS: ....nice variety of books....cool cat
CONS: ....hard to find parking downtown

Fantastic building with loads of used books, friendly staff, and a huge cat. The prices are affordable. The shelves are well-lit for browsing. They also buy used books for cash or trade.
