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.

This is probably the best book store I have ever been to. The owners are extremely friendly and helpful. And their dogs are a must see if you are in the area.

I'm a sucker for a good book store, but this one takes the cake! The entire family was completely occupied for an hour...sometimes hard to do with kids! You can find every kind of book here! Rare first editions, signed copies, children's books...you name it,...More
