Anderson's Bookstore really deserves credit for a friendly, upbeat atmosphere. You know they're passionate about their books, and when you walk in, there's always some display announcing a new title or author due to visit. Anderson's in Naperville hosts a constant schedule of events, and they're great about informing customers on their website and in the store itself! For example, they've had Christopher Paolini signing for "Eragon" and "Eldest" (popular with my kid brother's set) and Neil Gaiman for "Anansi Boys". The service here is great, especially if you're after a hard to find title or you can't recall who wrote that book about the girl in the green dress looking for her dog... Selection in areas isn't expansive, but they carry a good variety of some of the better options in a given genre, so you usually walk away with a good product. The handwritten recommendations in many sections are a welcome personalizing touch, especially to procrastinators. For parents, the child/family oriented events are worth checking out, and anyone walking through Naperville (maybe taking a bite at Lou Malnati's or enjoying the Riverwalk) should pop in to browse.
