Time Out says

Despite moving to a smaller storefront a few doors towards the train station, this sanctuary for book lovers more than lives up to its name. Beach babes and laid-back locals browse the aisles. There are a few trestle tables of haphazardly stacked secondhand reads out front, and they’ve maintained a small collection of rare and classic books in the front window – cover your literature basics with heavy Lewis Carroll and Tolstoy tombstones. Beyond, the library-classic wooden shelves are lined with new adult fiction and crime history, and you’ll find cookbooks, biographies, philosophical investigations and art and design texts on the next landing up a few stairs. The excellent collection of children’s books in the back corner is worth a visit alone. Locals can get involved in the monthly book club or sign on for regular book launches and talks.
