Feedback

"This is a fantastic store. I was only in Salt Lake City for two days and going to this store was high on my list. Walking through all the rows of books lived up to everything I expected. A wide range of unique books and fun finds. I say this store is a must visit if you are a book lover."

"Absolutely a joy to explore on your own. Several times as a student, I would be desperate for a source to cite for a paper, only to walk into this store and find exactly what I needed. The selection is truly impressive, and the smell transports you."
