This bookstore takes me back. They seem to have every kind of thing you could want, including a great kids section. It looks small from the front, but there are actually two buildings with full shelves. I found a bunch of cute activity books for...More

A great place to browse and find that prize book or video. Reasonable prices. Helpful and Friendly service. And the cats lounging among the books are no extra cost. We visit at least once a month.

We've been coming to this bookstore for years. It is a perfect place to browse for bargains in books. I have found great books on their "Bargain Porch" for a quarter. They offer mostly used books, but also new. They have a great local section...More

In this day of Amazon online book ordering and mega bookstore chains, what is the hope for a small personal, locally focused, caring bookstore that has books that you can't find elsewhere and actually Thumb Through Them to decide before purchasing? This is the place...More

This book store has been in Front Royal many years. It is small and jam packed inside. Half is dedicated to new books and half to used books. They are willing to order any book not in the store.
