Rhode Island Monthly recently voted this store and its “book-loving staff” as the BEST OF RHODE ISLAND. This is what they had to say about us: “In a sea of chain stores, this neighborhood fixture shines like a beacon. Everything you can get at Borders you can get here. You’ll also find something often missing at big-box bookstores: friendly, knowledgeable service from enthusiastic bibliophiles. Our first stop is always the staff picks shelf, and we never come away empty-handed.”
