Everyone who visits once is hooked! Great selection, great service, they will do anything to please. The people who work there LOVE books and read everything. Only one negative ... parking is often impossible but worth going around Greenwich Ave a few times.

It's a challenge to buy from a bookstore rather than online, but Diane and her staff are extremely helpful in selecting the right books to read ourselves or give as gifts to others
