I know I panned Renaissance's downtown store, but the airport branch is actually pretty cool and useful, though often more obscure than I'd prefer.

Located conveniently within Mitchell International Airport ("MKE"), this bookstore is a modestly sized library of interesting and eclectic material, and any traveler with an hour to kill would be wise to stop by. You might even find something nice to read on your flight.

Centrally situated in the main terminal building, you are close enough to the security queues for each major concourse so that you can keep an eye out for sudden long lines. Better to spend your plane-waiting time in a bookstore than a seat, I'd say.

I haven't found the staff to be particularly helpful or knowledgeable, but they're mainly there to check out your purchase.

Located IN the airport. Big selection. Piles of books. When the flight is delayed or there is a layover planned, read a book.
