I frequent this establishment on a regular basis. They have frequent author readings and book signings. I even stumbled across a Native American Dance Group performance who were in town from Wyoming. Cool spot.

What can I say, one of the classiest and most interesting places to visit in Doylestown. This is a vintage bookstore, with that organic feel, a polite staff (sometimes you need to get their attention for help) and a great variety of books and magazines, browse to your hearts content. Make sure you buy a book, they do have affordable... More

My hometown bookstore has a great selection of books for all ages. The children's section is great for families and teachers. They have special events such as book signings, readings for children, etc.

I love this bookstore. Has a plentiful collection of books from many genres, plus cards, calendars, gift wrap, snacks. Very convenient if one of the kids needs a book for school at the last minute. They carry all the books on our school district's reading lists. And if they don't have it, a book can be ordered and picked up... More

I've only been in this bookstore once, but it was a nice experience. I was looking for a particular book that the store ended up not having. The staff was super accommodating and immediately offered to have it ordered for me. I also had a lot of questions about another item in the store and the man at the register... More

This bookstore is a throw back from the past in the world of giant chains, Kindles, and Amazon. It's a joy to go in there. Besides books and friendly service, there are magazines, cards, and other things of interest to book lovers. A great place to bring the kids to pick out books and other things for kids. There are...

I love this bookstore and I hope it stays around forever. The staff is very knowledgeable and if they don't have the book you are searching for, they will order it. They have a good kids and teens section and gift items throughout the shop.

They always have such great book events and community activities in store. Not to mention, they have amazing service. The owner is amazing and super nice. If they don't have a book in stock, they'll order it for you. I believe on their online store they try to match amazon prices. Their monthly newsletter contains a coupon and there is... More

Doylestown was a treat and this little book store was a perfect fit to the time in the area. Great selection, leaning to various well marked age groups. Comfortable seating. Dozens of exceptional restaurants and coffee shops surround. Great target for an outing for an hour or afternoon
