What a great shop! I happened across this place when I had a bit of time to kill, and wandered around their lovely store for 20 minutes. They have lots of tables of books with different themes, as well as the usual by alphabet and genre around the walls. What I really liked is that they have a few nice chairs positioned around to be able to sit and read a bit.
