Good alternative to the chains!.
Great little shop that doesnt have the wide variety of books that you'd find in the behomoth bookstores that dot the landscape. What it does have though is quality books as well as a knowledgeable staff who will help you to select the right book. Add to that the creaky wooden floorboards and a nice selection of Papyrus cards and what you have is a recipe for an hour or two of enjoyable browsing and buying.
Bookstore browsing meshes with downtown shopping.. What to Expect What you shouldn't expect is a modern-day warehouse bookstorethis small shop barely makes a wrinkle in the Shockoe Slip shopping scene. What you do get, however, is a knowledgeable staff and plenty of personality. The wooden shelves and creaky floors inspire long bouts of browsing, but the selection is slim. Come here to find bestsellers, regional books and a unique selection of postcards.
