‪Do not buy or go to this store. They try to steal from there customers. They take items that where meant to be sold to there customers and up the price to double on eBay. Scam alert‬

‪Placed an order, received an email confirmation. However, nothing after that. I wrote the email number they gave me for queries about 5 times never to have a response. I called 3 times, received one general response phone call (on voice mail) saying only they would ask someone in the right department to look into it, then nothing and nothing to my follow up phone calls. There are so many responsible booksellers. This is not one of them.‬

‪This is a huge Independent Bookstore-one of a vanishing breed. Has a very comfortable antique feel..kind of like stepping back in time. Great selection and regularly hosts lectures and book signings by national and well known authors-for example Salman Rushdie who recently appeared.
Add extra time to browse the bargain books of which there seem to be thousands. There is a small free lot behind the store. On-street parking is limited, meter controlled and fairly costly. Neighborhood not necessarily the best but is steadily gentrifying. Baked goods and very good coffee are available. If you don't see what you want, just ask-it's most likely available.‬

‪There is a large assortment of books. They do their best to organize but I drove 45minutes from Gettysburg to an overpriced bookstore where I can get the same selections online at Amazon for less.

There is coffee,teas and bakery selections but on a Sunday in March.. it was a bit empty. There were also assorted homeless men (obvious) hiding in corners of the building which seemed to be a put off for some. ‬

‪This large, welcoming bookstore is well stocked with all the latest books as well as a large collection of used books on all topics. The children’s section, the art books, the history books, and the fiction are some of my favorites. They host talks by current authors, sell coffee and yummy snacks. You can curl up in any number of comfy armchairs and spend a few golden hours. Not to miss! Oh, and it’s the mayor’s business. How cool is that?!‬

‪We're from out-of-state but whenever we're in the Harrisburg area we make it a point to stop by for a few hours. The extensive history section is our favorite. We almost always find a book or two to add to our collection. Prices are reasonable and most books are in very good to excellent condition. Highly recommended you stop by if you're used book addiction starts getting the better of you. This place will provide you the fix you need.‬

‪Someone suggested we stop here and boy are we glad we did!
It was such a great experience. The books are amazing and they never end! Just when you think you’ve seen them all, you enter another room of treasures! ‬

‪This is an amazing book collection that still exists in city limits. Many book sellers who have extensive collections are mostly on-line only. Although it is fun to meander through the many rooms of this place, it is hardly a browsing bookstore--even with its nice signage and organization. If you have a particular interest/book/author, ask and be directed. Otherwise you will have little hope of finding it.
There is a nice little cafe with fair trade coffee and tea, nice prices, and the hospitality to stay as long as you like and play with your laptop. ‬

‪Great building, solid staff, I think if I lived here I's send entire winter weekends here (I KNOW I'd spend a lot of money here!). Amazing collections on things that are sparse at many stores: art and art history, photography and architecture. Just a treasure. Do NOT come to Harrisburg and miss it if you love books.‬

‪The store is attractive, although it's definitely a modern feel opposed to a used bookstore atmosphere. In fact, if they do indeed sell used books, it wasn't apparent to me.

Happened to be visiting during the book fair and was a little disappointed by the disorganization and lack of lighting at the tent sale and that they didn't leave a pathway for people to browse the store during the panel discussions. I'm sure they were pleased with the turnout, but I would have liked to not have been rushed and shooed out of the store with the little bit of time we were actually able to look, I'm sure I would have purchased more.

Definitely worth stopping if you are a bookstore person visiting the area.‬
