They have two floors of books to select from. It would take weeks to look through all the selections. We were able to find several books from our favorite authors and plan to make return trips once we read our latest purchases.

We stopped here a while back, just to see what it was like, and were unpleasantly surprised at how dusty and cramped it is. It's difficult to just browse.

I've seen the billboards for this store for years. We finally decided to stop in. I'm glad we did. The book store was as billed. There were tens of thousands of books. I've no doubt they easily surpassed their 100k book estimate. The building is a little old, but I thought it added to the charm. The books were organized... More

If your looking for a book this is the place to visit. This book store is stocked better than a lot of libraries I have been to. The owner really knows her stuff. If she doesn't have the book you want she knows where to find it.

Floor to ceiling books upstairs and down. Couldn't spend a lot of time there but it was a treat to go and purchase some books and know the store exists.

On my fifth trip across Montana in the last nine months, I decided to stop in the little town of Alberton, just before my regular overnight stay in Superior. I do not know why I chose to stop this time, but it was well with it. Driving through the town of about a dozen commercial and government buildings, you immediately... More
