Although they can't complete with the big ones such as B. Dalton, they are a great place to buy a magazine or a book. If they don't have the book you are looking for, they are very helpful in ordering it for you. If find sometimes the non-corporate store can be much more helpful when trying to find a book that may not be in stock. Book World has been in downtown Houghton for at least 10 years moving to its newest residence within the last 4-5 years. It is right across from the movie theater so if you arrive at the theater too early this is a great place to browse for books. I thoroughly enjoy going there.

If you are looking for variety this is a good place to start. The turnaround on new books isn't that great but this is a small town, so I guess that is to be expected. The actual store is appealing to look at as you are walking by (that is what drew me in for the first time). I found some nice books for children there that were "unique" and not something you would find at Walmart. The store is quite nicely set up and although I wasn't in the market for an adult book, the sections for non-children books looked well organized and the staff is very helpful in locating just what you are looking for. Tastefully and nicely decorated. Great staff. Parking limited to road out front on main street unless you park elsewhere and walk. I look forward to another trip here before Christmas.

PROS: Variety
CONS: Parking

Book World is a good place to buy books, it is right in the middle of downtown Houghton. They have a huge selection of recent books and magazines. The only thing that is not good about Book World is that they don't get the magazines right when they come in so usually you have to wait a couple weeks after the new issues hit the newsstands.

PROS: Lots to choose from
CONS: Outdated magazines
