Awesome visits from the stars, book signatures, real deal, you must come early for a sign copy from any star, rock & roll, Sports, Novelists, etc....

This place has lots of hype and I was not impressed. They do have many in store signings and meet & greats which is nice but overall I would not go out of my way to go here to go book shopping

Excellent service. Many authors visit this store to sign their works. Prices are decent.
easier shopping than in a Barnes and Noble.

Very very family oriented. Local and well known bookstore, has been here for year. Maybe centuries... You get alot of celebrities coming in to sign books. Sometimes, TV crew, if you lucky. Come and see for yourself. Books are regular competitive pricing. Sometimes you get a good bargain, depending on the book.

I hate to be negative about small independent bookstores but if you're interested in a wide selection of books on offer, this is not a store for you.

If you live nearby and are willing to wait, the staff will order and deliver books in about a week.

They do have a good selection of current best sellers, but their real strength is in autographed copies.

If you subscribe to their mailing list, you can also meet famous authors that you might be interested in. The lines are relatively short and the authors are usually very generous in answering questions.

But, if you want to find a massive selection, drive four miles out of town to Route 17 and visit the Barnes and Noble store on 17 South.
