    Went to Afterwords yesterday…love the new store and its convenient location and parking! I found so many great books at a fabulous price! I even found some free books! I will patronize this store in the future for sure!

    Came in the other day with my two teenage daughters. It was the first time we had visited and we fell in love with every square inch! What an amazing jewel! I can’t wait to bring the rest of my family so that they can enjoy it too.

    My daughter and I went to afterwords today for the first time. What a wonderful place!! I wanted to drink coffee, curl up in a chair and read all day. Such a welcome place to be. I will be back for years to come.

    Excellent little used book store!! I went to pick up a 5 ingredients or less cook book for my niece for Christmas and found 2 that she liked very much. Helpful staff and a nice historical book section made my day. Finishing my book on Thomas Jefferson and will be back for more. Thanks again.
