So many books at reasonable prices, Old and rare books as well as modern ones. Nearly a room full of sci-fi and fantasy including drafts. We enjoy browsing, then always find at least one thing.

This is easily my favorite used bookshop in Ann Arbor--even in a town where you run into one on every other street. The books are organized into sections, making it somewhat easy to find the things that strike your fancy. (However, some books could call...More
