- From the front, the store looks unassuming and downright tiny, especially next to some of the larger shops on Wells. It’s hard to imagine the wealth of books and literature behind that single screen door and neon open sign. – AJ Motia, iheartfortwayne
- This store is a delight to visit. Their inventory is huge, of relatively high quality, and very well organized. The recently added annex means you will spend even more time lost in the floor-to-ceiling shelves. – Lyn M., Insider Pages
