It is quite a large store, and has tons of titles, ranging from classics to the newest releases. I could have spent hours in there browsing the titles. The staff were very friendly, and the books very reasonably priced.

This is a nice little neighborhood bookshop. I could leave it there, but you'll probably want to know more. Yeah? Okay then.

On the Sunday that I visited this shop, there were a nice mix of people there - moms with strollers, younger-artsy men, cold girls in off the street (me included!), and other such everyday folk. The tables set along the main alleyway displayed intriguing covers...more
