You may think the paper page is gone! Not so! Make sure you visit this grand store and parouse! Don't forget to pet the two Standard Poodles that enjoy the freedom to rome the store and grounds! Most civilized!

When I think of bookstores, I think of places like this, where you can browse and lose track of time, where you go home with a treasure. The workers were also friendly and helpful.

Decent book selection since it is small. I always find something. The owners are very friendly, and their dogs are too. Recommended stop for book lovers. Great kids nook with neat Michigan themed books you don't see in other places.

A book buyer's dream. Great selection and the books are well organized. Prices are decent. Plan to spend more than just a few minutes in this place. And be sure to say "Hi" to resident dogs, Booker and Dewey (as in the Decimal System).

We were greeted by the owners and their two dogs. Everyone was friendly and welcoming. I found a good selection of nautical fiction at very reasonable prices, and my wife, daughter, and granddaughters came away with great holiday reading during our two visits.
