A great place to browse and find that prize book or video. Reasonable prices. Helpful and Friendly service. And the cats lounging among the books are no extra cost. We visit at least once a month.

This book store has been in Front Royal many years. It is small and jam packed inside. Half is dedicated to new books and half to used books. They are willing to order any book not in the store.

Big used bookstore, terrific selection in (as far as I could tell) all categories including sci-fi, and a friendly cat named Willa, just across the street from a great bistro and restaurant (Element, and Apartment 2G respectively).
