Magers and Quinn Booksellers is an excellent local book store in Uptown, Minneapolis. This bookstore carries a wide variety of books. They have a great selection of Minneapolis historical books, which is my area of interest. They also have many gift items such as calendars, diaries, and other notions. This book store is so popular that it actually had it's part in forcing out the Borders across the street. They closed their doors because Magers was doing better business for the uptown folks.
