“Everything Anne Rice”
Reviewed 24 July 2013

Its been a while since I've been here, but I've ordered books from them on line. Friendly staff very helpful. A lot of first edition books of local writers. When I was there they had quite a few signed first editions of almost all of Anne Rice's novels. I've always found some treasure there. Its also right across the street from the Lafayette Cememtery which seems to be one of the safer cemeteries to visit during the late afternoon. Garden District is a gorgeous area and if you love New Orleans hop on a trolley car and get your butt over there. You can't say you've been to NOLA without seeing the Garden!

“Nice little local bookshop”
Reviewed 19 July 2013

This is located in "The Rink", a small shopping center located in The Garden District near Lafayette Cemetery #1. NIce for a stop especially if you're interested in books with local connections. It's air conditioned, which is a big plus on a hot day. There are also a few other shops there, benches to take a break on, and restrooms.

“Great Remaining Treasure”
Reviewed 9 July 2013

I love this book store so much. It's within walking distance of my home and everyone who works there is super nice. They even let us bring our dog in while we browsed. Even though it's a small book store, you can get lost for hours in all the titles they carry. If they don't have what you are looking for, they will order it for you and even ship it if you need them to. They are located in The Rink on Prytania and Washington. Still Perkin' Coffee shop is right next door so it's the perfect atmosphere.
