Mac's Backs Paperbacks

With no wings dedicated to music, lattes, or multimedia, Mac's is truly old-school, a welcome departure from the modern megabookstores. Mac's keeps its focus squarely where it belongs: on the books. With three floors loaded with new and used volumes, its interior resembles a relative's stuffy den. The eclectic selection ranges from classics to contemporary, including hard-to-find editions. The store also carries lit 'zines like Zoetrope and The <$f"Alternative-HTF2-Italic">Believer, and popular fare of the <$f"Alternative-HTF2-Italic">Harry Potter variety. Mac's also hosts frequent readings, book-signings, and workshops. If you want a cappuccino, go to Borders. If you want to read, come to Mac's.
