Three Lives and Company is an independent neighborhood bookstore. I've been there enough that they know what I like to read and can make good recommendations. It's real charming. I'm always afraid that one day it's going to go away like all the independent stores do. If you go here and want to get a best-seller, there's a chance they don't have it yet, but at Three Lives and Company you're willing to wait three weeks for them to get it even if you can go somewhere else and buy it right away. They are truly one of a kind and that's what I like about them.
