I loved this little bookstore. Besides a nice choice of books (small but good sci fi section), they have some great cards, a huge magazine selection, and some nice unique gifts. Really enjoyed browsing this place.

We walked along the street after enjoying lunch. Went into this independent bookstore and left with a book and journal. Prices were reasonable and the selection impressive.
