Fodor's Review

If you're intoxicated by the smell well-worn books, you'll be addicted as soon as you step inside this store. Among its thousands of treasures are rare paperbacks and recent novels. Tons of gently used cookbooks are shelved next to Sugar, a friendly ishop where you can satisfy your sweet tooth over a cuppa jo and a good book. You'll also find the largest collection of African American literature in town, a huge selection of Judaica, as well as theater books and movie and film scripts.
