    Is way bigger on the inside than it looks from the outside... very cool little book stop, though pales in comparison to Powell's City of Books (Portland, OR)

    Maybe the best used book store in the Twin Cities! Plus it's next to Amazing Thailand and their Tom Yum Soup!

    Long live independent bookstores! Sometimes, you'll get lucky and stumble upon a reading. Stay and listen even if you've never heard of the author!

    For your first time here, start at the back and walk the stacks to get the lay of the land.

    This is an excellent bookshop, on par with Powell's (though smaller!), and Strand (though closer!).

    Browse the shelves in this huge independent book store for new and used books. Also stop in for frequent book readings/signings by local authors.

    Expansive and affordable selection of books on film, and lots of hard to find comics!

    They have a great collection of Minnesota postcards! Best I've seen in any gift store.

    They have one of the coolest designer notebooks for categorizing projects. Cute. Quiet. Wish they had coffee.
