This is like the Waldens of my childhood. These stores were always small either in a mall or on a store front. They carried all the latest best sellers. This one is in the center of Needham and since I went on a weekday afternoon, there were some kids hanging out talking about comic books. I thought it was kind of cute because the local bookstore is a great place for kids to hang out. The staff seemed very tolerant of the kids talking in the book store and they didn't seem the least distracted by them. I have a much nicer image of Walden after that experience.
