Unique bookshop 5/28/2006

I love this bookshop which focuses on biography (although not exclusively). They have new and used books, and some real bargains. And if you're into the story of true lives, it's a great place to visit. A fun browse and occassionally a great discovery is here. I've found it to be a great place to visit when trying to find the right gift for a book lover. more

Don't be fooled by the title: you can get everything in this small, neighborhood place. The bins outside have hardcover books at bargain prices, and inside is a thoughtful collection of fiction, travel books, contemporary stuff, and lots of non-fiction. The staff is helpful, and there's always some author-type floating around to give it more ambience. more
