I LOVE Book Culture. For me, they started with the somewhat negative introduction as being the slightly overpriced textbook store for most of us on campus. However, this location (as well as the one slightly farther downtown at 81st and Columbus) has transitioned to being solely focused on leisure reading fare (the textbook location is the one a few blocks north, closer to campus). The store clerks are friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. Despite the store's tiny size, they have an impressive stock of options - I just recently found a book I'd been struggling for some time to locate and was overjoyed at the find. Also, great cards, stationery, and gift ideas to be found!
