Magers & Quinn

If any bookstore is destined to endure, it’s Magers & Quinn, that Uptown oasis of all things literary since 1994. While the tables and displays of new books will catch your eye immediately upon entry, it’s the used book selection that’s really worth exploring. With rare finds, collectibles, and obscure editions, there’s always something unexpected waiting for you here. Hardcore bibliophiles will also appreciate the scent of the store — olfactory proof of the multitudes of much-beloved and well-read volumes contained therein. Unsure where to begin? The staff can point you in the right direction; avid readers themselves, they’re bound to have a recommendation on which story to get lost in next.
