    Immense downtown bookstore that puts New York City's Strand to shame. Follow the signs or end up lost for hours. Lovely mix of new and used; mass-market and small press. Great coffee shop too.

    Great place. Get lost, I mean it. If you love books there isn't a better place on earth. Wall to wall, floor to floor, section to subsection. Get lost inside, you'll be happy you did.
