Forget those large, impersonal chain bookstores and head over to Books & Co. Their selection is just fantastic. They often have author book signings. Their prices are good.

This bookstore is the only one in Dayton which consistently works on bringing well-known authors into town. Recently they brought Diana Gabaldon, and Sophie Kinsella has been here, and also Dan Brown (of the DaVinci Code fame). They are happy to order books that are not in stock. My only issue is the layout of the store, the aisles are often very small and it's hard to get through especially if you have kids in tow. But it's still a good bookstore, and I prefer it to Barnes and Noble or Borders.

PROS: Lots of author signings, good in stock collection
CONS: Strange store layout

When I first found Books & Company about 15 years ago, I thought that it couldn't get any better but somehow they keep adding more and more. This store has everything! They have a wide selection of magazines. Outstanding selection, knowledgable staff, clean store, great events. Going to this store is like taking a mini-vacation. The parking can seem pretty tight. There is a back entrance or you can use the frony mall entrance.

PROS: This store has everything!
CONS: Too big..can be overwhelming.

This is a fairly large bookstore. They offer hundreds of different types of books and magazines and even have an indoor cafe. The employees are very friendly and is always offering their assistance for you. The store generally has several sales going on and even a separate display rack showcasing special books they have for sale. In the center of the store is a sort of lounge where occasionally, authors come and read/discuss their latest works.

If they don't have it they will find it. This is the best bookstore in Dayton. They bring many authors into the store to speak and sign books. Great service and knowlegable staff set it apart.
