I stop in and wander here every weekend on my usual Sunday stroll. I love the book/magazine selection, the friendly staff and love reading all the hand-written recommendations. Proud to support a LGBT and local business,. They're dog friendly too so that's fun!
Every time I come in here, I buy a bunch. Their selection is incredible, and their descriptions of the books on the shelves are not only helpful, but highly entertaining.
This homey little bookstore is lined with great staff's picks and interesting books. Regardless of what I'm looking for, or if I'm not even sure what my next read will be, I'm sure I can find it at Unabridged.
My favorite bookstore in the city (and luckily enough it's in my neighborhood). The shelves are carefully curated and lined with handwritten notecards by staff members telling you why you should read their personal picks. The large remainders section and a vast selection of LGBT literature are major draws.
