I love this place. Despite the name, it's not all lofty feminist treatises (though, if you want one, you can find it here) - there's an amazing selection of just about everything.

Besides new releases and best-sellers, there's a great selection of books by female authors, an extensive LGBT section, and books for kids.

LOVE IT! – This place has the best books!!! I can always find unique books here for both myself and kiddies. I love the fact that they have a lot of community speakers and presenters come into the place. I love going into a bookstore and just passing hours at a pop by relaxing pouring through books. The staff has never made me feel uncomfortable for lounging about and taking my time, even if I don't buy something. I highly recommend this place to anyone with children, but especially anyone who has a daughter defineitely should check this place out. It is a gem of a bookstore and truly deserves the high rating it has achieved.

Brilliant!!!!! This store is doing something that most stores can only dream of. A perfect mix of feminist, hip, caring, and smart. This store has the best customer service in Chicago by caring women that actually want to help you and not just make a sale. I highly suggest a trip to Aville to visit this little gem.

This feminist bookstore offers a comprehensive, wide-ranging selection. – In Short
Warm, cheery, welcoming and scholarly all at once--and yes, there are plenty of men who shop here. Guest authors have included Margaret Atwood, Gwendolyn Brooks, Molly Ivins and Louise Erdrich. The store has co-sponsored events featuring Alice Walker, Anita Hill and Hilary Rodham Clinton. The shelves include literature and biography, as well as books on recovery, cooking, women's studies, psychology and gay and lesbian literature.

Absolutely the best – This is one of the most wonderful independent bookstores ever. A great selection of all kinds of books, with a focus on women/kids. Knowledgable service, terrific atmosphere, and you get to support independent voices to boot!

Reader's Delight – This is a wonderful bookstore with helpful book sellers and great readings. If you're in the area (it's a little out of the way unless you're on the north side of town), stop in for some good reading.

Great alternative bookstore – If it's a gay/lesbian title or gender studies tome, you'll probably find it here. Good selection, nice indie store feel (so you don't feel like you're selling your soul to Barnes & Noble).
