This place is the nicest, friendliest, retail experience ever. It's my 8 year old son's home away from home. They're kind enough to let him go back behind the counter to special order books with the friendly staff. They make fantastic recommendations. They do lovely seasonal merchandizing and also incredible gift-wrapping. Store is clean, family-friendly and has so much more humanity and warmth than buying books from the robots that run Amazon. Spend an extra dollar to have a human experience in local Noe Valley retail gem.
The poets, Doreen Stock and Claudia Chapline, read their work and talked about their incredible lives last night and while they are not without recognition in their own lives, Noe Valley was blessed with their presence and their thought provoking work. Thank you Judy and Ramone. Steve Anderson
