One million words, at your service

The best little bookstore in town.

New and used books for seekers of both knowledge and amusement.

New books daily. Buying books always.

We're one of the city's most storied (sorry) bookstores. We pride ourselves on finding anything our customers want and keeping a well curated section of new books, as well as always happily looking at books people bring in to see if they can find a home on our shelves.
