  • Upper level has a nice selection of Chicago themed books, lower level has a bookcase or two for each of the usual genres. Last few times I've been in, the staff has been crusty and unpleasant. Too bad, this bookstore has a ton of potential but I'm not in a hurry to go back.

  • Had a weird experience here. First time there, my husband and I were asked to check our backpacks, totally fine. We went to the basement and looked at books for about a half hour and even though there was a really impressive selection, we didn't find anything to buy. On our way out, we used the very nice and clean restrooms. Then when we went to get our backpacks back, the lady behind the counter got really weird and patronizing and told us we didn't need to check backpacks if we just wanted to use the bathroom. I said no we'd been looking at books for a while and just didn't find anything, and she was like "no really, you don't have to check them for the restroom." Had she lost track of time or was she upset we weren't buying anything? I have no clue but I felt upset when we left and a little insulted. Other than her, this is a very nice store!

  • This is a good store for browsing, although it has its quirks. At least it's clean and quiet. Prices are high, but I'm sure the rent isn't cheap this close to the Magnificent Mile. Most of the books are downstairs, so there's a lot more than what you see looking through the window.

  • One of the smaller bookstores that I've been to. I like how chairs are set up in every quiet corner to invite the reader to sit and preview a book before they decide to buy it. Used and new books are mixed together. Used prices here seem higher than other places.

  • Great selection of books. Used books reasonably priced. Clean and very organized store.
