Crystal Pepsi. Tamagotchis. Slap bracelets. Urkel. These are but a few things from the '90s that will (and probably should) be forgotten over time. However, our nostalgic tendencies sometimes keep things like Caboodles and Pogs alive in our... More »

Every so often, a book comes along that makes me feel stupid. Not stupid because the content is over my head (although that happens, too), but stupid because while reading the closing chapters in a public location I must fight back the tears and... More »
If the windows on Dylan Hicks's debut novel, Boarded Windows (Coffee House Press), are indeed boarded, it's because the high- and low-brow music, literary, and cultural notes that fill its pages are straining against the glass. But the thicket of... More »

Twin Cities book lovers are blessed with an embarrassment of riches. Better still, lit junkies without, you know, actual riches have a slew of discount dealers at their disposal, so there's no need to sell plasma or skip a meal to stay flush with reading material. Among the options for bargain-minded bookworms, one stands tall above the rest: the mighty Magers & Quinn. The uptown anchor has it all: an attractive space, roomy layout, friendly staff, and convenient hours. Its stock of used... More »
With its cluttered shelves and seemingly endless rows of books, it's easy to get lost inside Magers and Quinn. From Charlie Brown to Aristotle, hidden treasures can be found in every nook and cranny of the store. It's the perfect place to browse, with more than 120,000 used and current titles, with subjects ranging from how to cook to how to find a date. Snuggled between the white shelves of popular titles are old, dusty cases filled with a first-edition Dickens and other collector's items,... More »
It's nice when a bookstore is large and serpentine enough to offer hidey-holes and escape routes, should one catch a glimpse of an irritating co-worker or regrettable ex-boyfriend. M&Q's buyers are discerning, so the treasure-to-trash ratio is above average, but they're also democratic, so they have pulp paperbacks as well as the letters of Robert Lowell, a shelf devoted to books on "sexual fulfillment," and a good amount of German philosophy, long a wonderful comfort to the sexually...

"Independently owned" is retail's rockiest road, particularly in the book racket. Squeezed by online giants, hounded by avaricious landlords, perused and abused by a fickle clientele often more interested in looking than buying--is it any wonder that so many booksellers have abandoned storefronts in favor of web-based operations--or, worse still, given up the ghost? Like fellow survivors Powell's (Portland) and Strand (NYC), Magers and Quinn has chosen to mutate with the times,... More »
A used bookstore's charm is directly correlative to the amount of time you can dissipate in finding the book you've entered with the intent of purchasing. We've whittled away more hours than we care to calculate among the stacks of this perennial Twin Cities favorite. Still, we've noticed that we almost always emerge carrying whatever it was we were looking for in the first place--a testament to both the store's tranquil atmosphere and its imposing selection. Especially laudable are the... More »
