Stopped by to see what they had. Everything! Plus the building is gorgeous. Wanted to browse for hours. I wish they had a 2nd hand or vintage section. If they did I didn't see it.

Great book store with lots of bargain tables which seem to be the best deals. Easy to locate options although aisles can be rather crowded.
