"Wow! I've never had someone from a bookstore chase me down the street after I left to tell me they found the book I was looking for! This will be my bookstore for life!"  --  Nate, Mansfield University college student

*

"Will you please consider opening up a bookstore like this in my area?" -- Lauren, avid reader & author, from upstate NY

"We've never been in a bookstore that sold new and used books, that was so well-organized and fun to browse! And I've never had a bookstore worker spend so much time with me, searching the computer for an old book I wanted, and helping my kids figure out the next book in a series. This place is a real treasure." -- visitors from Ontario, Canada

"YOU make this bookstore such a wonderful experience"-- Eugene, local

"I can't believe how much work you guys put into this event. Plenty of places would charge for this kind of entertainment. You've given them a great time, a place to go and hang out and have fun, somewhere safe and interesting for the whole family. I'm really impressed." -- Brian, Pittsburgh

"We would rather work with you for our school book fair. You know us; you know our kids; you know what it's like to grow up in this area. Your prices are better, and it's a much better selection" -- local high school teacher

"How did you get such an amazing selection? I mean, who told you about all these titles? You even have used copies of some of these award-winners. I love bookstores; I visit them everywhere I go, and none of them has this variety of books. Who here reads all of these?" -- slightly snobby but well-meaning traveler, visiting us for the first time :)

"You have a beautiful store. And it's really wonderful how knowledgeable you all are. Thank you so much for your help picking out books for my grandsons. You don't get that kind of service at the big chain stores. With them, it's just a job -- you know, 'Do you want fries with that?' It's obvious you read and love books."-- Megan, visitor from Lancaster, PA

*

"Whoa. I think this is the best bookstore I've ever been in. I could spend hours in here. Are you open tomorrow?"--George, visitor from Baltimore, MD

"The last time we were here, we came in because it was raining and we were all wet, and you let us take our wet shoes off! We got to walk around in our bare feet! And we found lots of great Junie B Jones books, and Katie Kazoo, and Geronimo Stilton!"  --the twins, visiting Grandma
