I have tried to stop in several times while visiting and was never able to make it in. My last time in Princeton I was able to finally make it in and I am so glad I did. It is so clean and cozy inside and there is a great selection throughout. I didn't have anything in mind when I came in and walked out with several books that I was excited to find. Staff was friendly and the atmosphere was relaxed. I found the prices to be fair, but a bit confusing at times (wasn't always sure if stickers were prices for the store or if they were old stickers from previous shops/sales) I can't wait to stop by again.

Filled out several novels missing from my home library. The books are well organized and the owner super helpful. The venue's vibe was cozy and homey and comfortable. Multiple visits later and still a good vibe.

The environment is so relaxing as soon as you walk in. Everything is set up to where you can easily find what you're looking for. The shelves also have tabs describing what type of genre is in each section. They have an area specifically for children as well as an open sitting area for popping a squat and skimming over your purchase and potential purchases. They take your used books for store credit that counts as half of your purchase. They also have a fine selection of incense, handmade paintings, jewelry and bookmarks from local crafters. They offer to find and order a book or books you're looking for and on the first Friday of every month, they give 10% off. Military, law enforcement and first responders also get a discount any time they come in. All in all, this is a great place to bring your family to and enjoy the many adventures reading has to offer.
