This is the best bookstore I've ever been to. Not a used bookstore, not a Borders, not even a Barnes and Noble, Quimby's offers the largest variety of local and national zines, independent publications and reviews.
The Staff is friendly, cool, and Quimby's isn't one of those places where they watch you like hawks, sure you'll steal all their wares if they're not careful. No- Quimbys is a small bookstore that trusts its patrons and doesn't insult anybody's tastes, looks or interests. They swing towards the more DIY, artistic and experimental sides of literature, which is refreshing in this time of Oprah's book club, overpriced bestseller fever. I wanted to take home the whole store!
THe only reason it lost a star (and i debated over this for a while) was because it didn't necessarily have the largest variety of books, so I can't go there for classics, or anything. Still, what a great bookstore- we need more like them!
