My favorite new books bookstore is Chester County Books, about 45 minutes south of here, near West Chester University (PA). It's one of the few new book bookstores that's not a chain, and it's huge, eclectic, and has a GREAT Civil War section. Drop me there, I can spend hours. They also have a small cafe that has the best dobosh torte I've tasted outside Europe.

As for my favorite old book bookstore, that would be my parents' basement! They do antiquing, and my mother has shelves and shelves of used books. Her favorites are by Jean Stratton Porter. She doesn't have many CW books, but her large collection covers just about everything else. A nice day is spending a hot summer afternoon down in their cool basement, checking out the books!
