I haven't really explored the music side of the store, but you could really get lost in this bookstore. It has a tremendous offering of books and magazine, many you don't see in the mega-chain bookstores. They also bring in a lot of authors for readings too. The cafe is great as well.

The Chester County Book and Music Company has several major advantages over other bookstores. Their staff is extremely knowledgeable (like they actually *read* the books they sell). The selection is outstanding. The store layout is browse-able and comfortable. Lastly, the restaurant is decent and a nice place to hang out for lunch with a friend. I find the parking to be convenient and ample except for Saturday afternoon and right before Christmas.

The only negavative they might have is that they don't discount deeply. The shopping experience and probability that they will have a book that is not "mainstream" is well worth the trip.

Chester County Book and Music company in the goshen center pretty much has any book you could want if it is not a first print or an older book. There are rows upon rows of books, music, and gifts. Sales assistants are fairly visible and can direct you in the right area in this overwhelming store. They have best sellers, lesser known books, and many others. Great place for books.

This store is notorious for having a variety of books - be they best-seller or hard-to-find. They are a bit expensive, but they offer a terrific children's area complete with tables, chairs, and big bug rugs! They also offer a cafe which is also pricey but good for when you want to take a friend out for a cup of coffee. This bookstore is located in a mall and can prove to be slightly difficult to park near.

PROS: Variety/Children's Area
CONS: Expensive/Snobbish/Hard to get to
