Great non-chain bookstore. I love little bookshops like A Novel Idea because I tend to dislike big media conglomerate type businesses (aka Barnes and Noble). A Novel Idea has a great selection of poetry: the classical and the newage. Also, if they don't have something or are out of stock, you can have it ordered and it comes pretty quickly. The staff is very helpful and unlike other neighborhood bookstores, this one is organized in a systematic way so you can find what you are looking for in a relatively easy manner. The prices sometimes aren't as discounted as the bigger chains, but they small stores can't really afford to lower their prices like the big ones.
