The previous review, while very nice, is very odd here, dated 2010, since Transitions closed in 2008. Transitions was a wonderful bookstore, gift store and meeting place. It's sadly missed by many.

It also was not in Lincoln Park,

Transitions is a peaceful bookstore with a plethora of books on every topic that could come to mind. Not only are there great books, but the ambiance is fabulous. They always have soft music playing and welcome people to come in a read for a while, without feeling pressured to buy anything. They have a great coffee area and sometimes have readings there as well. I really enjoyed the atmosphere and would go there again.

PROS: Not pricey and has a parking lot
CONS: Parking lot is tough during evenings and weekends.

This is a good bookstore, but more so it is an environment. This is a good store for a tough day get-a-way. The store smells amazing and there is a great coffee shop with vegertarian foods, coffees, teas and unbelievable pastries oh yeah and books. The collection is great. They have alternative healing books, native american, tarot, meditation, yoga, religeon, women studies and great journals and magazines. They also have litlte treats like incense, water fountains, cards and music.

PROS: the parking lot is tough on the weekends
CONS: they have a parking lot!
