I love this bookstore. The bookstore is small and perfect. The booksellers are knowledgable. They make great suggestions. The kid's book selection is the best in the state. There is a room for novels, an area for mysteries, a poetry room, and a nice selection...More

I'm 15 and I love books. This place is the cutest place to sit down with little kids and read. It's a nice happy atmosphere and Otis not to pricey!

Love this bookshop - you can find all sorts of nooks and crannies stuffed with new titles, obscure titles and fun items too. A woman was knitting as she perused the mystery books. A children's reading event was beginning in the kids section and several...More

Great local book store, well organized and fun to browse. I wish I had one in my home town. A place well maintained by other bibliophiles.

This is the type of bookstore I wish all local bookstores would be. Homey and crammed with all the best books, there were comfy chairs throughout and great lighting. Nothing dark and dingy about this shop. Spent a couple hours here without even trying. Friendly...More
