I was at the bookstore in 2009. I have to say the store was as good as advertised. Not so much for the book selection (there were other used bookstores that had great selections to say nothing of all the open air markets and bookstalls), but for the atmosphere. The view out the second floor window of Notre Dame was incredible and you could sit out in front of the store all day people watching, which was encouraged. While I was roaming around the store, two or three backpackers came through looking for a part time job in exchange for room and board. The store was a time warp and an oasis.
