This bookstore is everything Ann Arbor is at its heart and best. Fantastic selection of books, and a cafe upstairs with regular music and poetry events.

An awesome little store. Great selection, helpful staff. It's crowded, but the little cards on the shelves (employee reviews) are insightful and interesting. Coffee's good, too.
