“The bookstore is a fantastic little place! I'm a history book guy, and while the selection isn’t huge, what there is, is interesting. I was torn between the Battle of Borodino (which is a Napoleonic battle you don’t see written about much), and a biography of John Mackay, miner-turned-Comstock millionaire! I chose Mackay, but it was a hard choice!
