We like to read...the whole family likes to read, so, of course, a bookstore is a must for us. We go to find books for ourselves or as gifts for others. We like this store because they do seem to have a large selection to choose from and the atmosphere is relaxed and welcoming. People generally will be found sitting on the floor reading..almost on every aisle, which is good for business, but not so good if you are searching for something and can't down the aisle to look for it. They do have a coffee shop which gets raves from those who drink coffee, but not enough places to sit and read for those of us who don't (unless you like getting on the floor. I, personally, would have a hard time getting back up!) Prices are moderate to high depending on if you can manage a discount from the store and the employees seem too distracted to be able to help anyone. Still, overall, we are drawn to bookstores and this one is no exception.

Our Books-a-Million is a fantastic store, filled with every kind of book you can imagine, plus Hallmark cards and novelties, and more.

The Pluses:
*wide range of selection of books
*very appealing layout--eye catching
*Can sit on the floor and read without someone giving you the "look"

The Minuses:
*Staff is not very friendly, nor very helpful. I have no remembrance--any of the many times I have been in there--of being asked if I need help. The counter service was not super either.
*Can get overwhelming trying to find a certain book. Not sure what the system is of organizing the store. There are sections, but then you try to find things within that section and get lost. Particularly with the children's books.

I really enjoyed the Harry Potter release party they had in July. That was well organized and a lot of fun for all ages.

This store has a huge selection and a great coffee shop. The only real downsides to this store are that it is crowded both with people and "stuff" in the aisles and it can be overwhelming to locate an item. Staff are helpful if you can find them.
