Even if you don't consider yourself a "bookish" person, stop in here. There's literally so much stuff that you'll probably find something that interests you!

This place is a labarynth of small rooms and little nooks, all filled with shelves and shelves of books. You can easily get lost here for 4 or 5 hours. They also have great posters for that college dorm room or office. And I got a cool T-Shirt of one of my favorite books. If you're into books, this is a must-stop-and-see for your road trip through Columbus.

Such a special place. You can definitely get lost here, I wouldn't not recommend bringing a flashlight. Many, many new books and posters. A great graphic novel selection.

This place has books on literally every subject! It's easy to get lost in the narrow aisles of books here, but that's half the fun!
