Great specialty books, not much for general tastes. – Santoro's is definitely a specialty bookstore. This is a five-star if you are looking for a hard-to-find, intellectually challenging book. If you are looking for a bookstore with a wide, general range of titles, look elsewhere. The store has a great section for kids, a great section for historically important or artistically written fiction, and a diverse poetry section.
However, if you are not buying a book for a literature, philosophy, or writing professor or student, you may not find anything to suit you.
I will shop there again, when searching for a particular classical work, but I did not find a single book to purchase as a gift for my stepbrother, whose tastes range in the horror, fantasy, and science fiction realms. No coffee table books with impressionist works in them for my father were available. A few graphic novels and travel books that were passable for my little brother caught my eye.
Plenty of street parking on the same block and friendly, non-pushy staff make this an easy stop for shopping.
Again, great specialty shop, but not for most readers.
