It's a great to spend time in RJ Julia. They even have a restaurant so there's no need to leave all day.

Extensive selection. Staff very helpful. They have guest authors come in to speak. They have just opened a branch in Middletown on Main St. There's something for everyone.

The staff is very helpful when searching for a specific book. The café is an extra bonus with a wonderful selection of soups and sandwiches.

Great selection of unique items. Not just a bookstore; you need to take your time to see everything or you may miss what may be the perfect gift. There is a quaint coffee shop in the back of the store.

My first time at the book store, we went for a John Grisham book signing and everything was flasless. Huge selection of books and a snug little cafe in the back with outdoor or indoor dinning.

If in the area RJ is a must. Books are well displayed, with staff recommendations highlighted on comment cards. Staff is also very helpful. The cafe is a great spot for small bite/coffee or lunch. I especially like the outdoor patio when it is open.
