Voted Best Bookstore by Inlander readers, Auntie's offers readers a quaint atmosphere that harkens back to a time when the earth was made entirely of shelves and comfy chairs. Thousands of new and used books peacefully co-exist in Auntie's paper utopia, including heart-warming classics such as To Kill a Mockingbird ($7.99+) and flesh-eating hits such as Pride and Prejudice and Zombies ($12.95). In addition to internationally renowned bestsellers, Auntie's also boasts an impressive children's section, as well as works by local authors. For loose-cannon customers who refuse to play by the book, Auntie's also slings a number of non-chaptered items, including magazines, book accessories, and Out of Print T-shirts.
Nomadic bibliophiles can take advantage of free weekly events, such as book readings and author signings, and ill-informed literavores can opt for recommendations from Auntie's friendly, knowledgeable staff. Parking can be tricky around the downtown area, but Auntie's offers several suggestions and tricks to make parking easier, including curbside service. Take a break from reading the palms of passing clouds and opt for the bound bliss of Auntie's Bookstore.
