I don't understand the reasoning behind having live music in a bookstore. I like quiet when I am browsing for books to buy. Other than that, this bookstore is a pretty good one with a lot of variety and good selection. Their kids section has lots of loungey seating and very kid-friendly displays. You will need to check the store map to find everything because there are three or four different levels and many sections. We've gotten many good books off the sales racks. The location is great but parking is a pain.
