Talking Leaves is by far one of the best bookstores in the country. With a small, intimate staff, and a selection stretching back over nearly 40 years, there's nowhere you can go wrong with this store. Sure, there's not a lot of space in the store, and it's jam-packed with books-but that adds to the charm of the store. If you truly love books, then this is the place to go. the staff knows what they're doing, and they seem to love their jobs. As for prices; although you can't get books for 2 dollars each, what's a few bucks for a good book?
