This is a great local business and worth the visit if you're in the neighborhood. The staff and owner are always helpful and extremely well read (while that should go without saying, in this case it is worth mentioning) and they can order almost anything that they don't specifically carry at the moment. They also have a great selection of cards, the new paperback releases are always well displayed and accessible, and the staff reviews have repeatedly guided me to many an excellent read. The magazine section isn't what it used to be, but there is plenty of other material of interest to distract from that fact. The children's section is sweet and well set up, with a great selection. A little-known tip: They validate parking from across the street, under the QFC. Great hours too, open surprisingly late for when you don't know where to wander.
