This is such a fun bookstore. They have an amazing kids' section--actually, the whole store is pretty great, but the kids' section is especially impressive. The staff are friendly and always willing to talk books and give recommendations.

Northshire Bookstore is everything you want in a non-chain shop. They offer everything from best sellers to local authors plus gifts and even some chothing. They have added a coffee shop with delicious pastries.

We have a bookstore similar to this at home but it's still worth the trip. Lots to see and plenty of books and trinkets. I loved the layout and we spent a good amount of time here and I could have easily spent more!
