Find their selection, trade policy and service to be excellent. They are more than willing to offer suggestions about different selections and different authors. Only wish they had more variety in selection but that may come with time. Also like their polcy if outings such as the Mystery Tour held previously. Would and have recommended them to a number of people.

This place shouldn't call themselves a second hand book store, they do sell old books but charge you full price for them. I traded in a bag of books and still ended up paying full price for the "new" books that I got. You would be better off going to a real book store where everything is clean and organized than to shop there.

Stacks of great books, a glad-your-here free hot chocolate on your first visit, and a warm friendly atmosphere. Customer service is stellar. The owner searched the basement, called other bookstores and reserved a needed book at ANOTHER business. Very impressed.

I have always had good luck finding books at this store but do not personally care for the trade-in policy. It also is a bit cluttered. But the great selection of both new and used makes up for the down falls. The owner will also special order new books at for customers.

This is not a vintage bookstore, but a friendly warm atmosphere that features more pop culture. Strong reading
choices in sci-fi, mystery, childrens, nonfiction & even spiritual categories. They also have new book choices or can get them overnite. Particularly struck by the hospitality.

They have a surprisingly large selection of books and audio tapes here! It was a very relaxing trip, and I found exactly what I was looking for! They have a very friendly, knowledgeable staff, who are always very willing to help you find what you need. It is a nice alternative to the huge book store chains around here!
