This Park Slope bookstore has been around since 1971, and it just rocks. It's fun to peruse, it has a good selection, and the staff is great. It occasionally hosts readings, which are always worthy of attention, and even organizes book groups, in which you'll read authors like Georges Simenon. Only in Brooklyn, people!
