I haven't shopped here in a while but my son still does frequently. Quaint shop with a good selection of U.P. related books. Marquette's only used bookstore, on Third Street, right up the hill from Washington Street downtown. Spend twenty minutes and take a look.

I make a point to drive here whenever I'm in a 50 mile radius. They have a great selection, used next to new, and if you are interested in Upper Peninsula topics, they have a bookcase for you. Great booksellers.
