More than 100,000 spinebounds span the 4,000-square-foot shop, which highlights subjects such as art, photography, Native American literature, and children's titles, while many collectible sets and books come bound in leather to trap their two-dollar prepositions and rare seventh-person omniscient narrators. Ken also hones in on pieces that cover Utah and the Mormons, Native Americana, the literary West, and modern first editions. Bookworms can further burrow through the wide variety of modern and classic authors, including Dave Eggers, David Foster Wallace, J.D. Salinger, E.L. Doctorow, and more.
