Booky Joint had a great selection of new and used books at reasonable prices. They also sell puzzles and games. The set-up of the store was easy to navigate and staff were friendly. Well worth a visit.

We like to shop for books at Booky Joint. It has lots of great books to buy and read. It also has tourist type books regarding the area. It is in the Minaret Village Shopping Center.

Great little book shop, with helpful and friendly staff. Appears to be an independant shop which is always nice.
