When book stores all around the country are dying out, this one is still thriving. They not only have a huge selection and diversity of books for sale, they also have great gift items, coffee, etc.

If you miss Borders Bookstore, you'll love Joseph-Beth Booksellers. It's the best of everything: gifts, paper-goods, cafe and of course a wide selection of books. We could've spent the day and will return!

I love this place and visit whenever I am in Lexington. It is not just a bookstore. There are mementos and regional favorites, Vera Bradley items, a restaurant and of course books. There seems to be a whole children's level but I never made it...More
