This is without a doubt the best book store in town! The staff is friendly and knowledgable and they have the best selection of manga in town! If they don't have what you want they will order it in for you.
Bolen Books is a Victoria institution that should not be missed. It is one of the main reasons to go to Hillside mall. The selection is vast and the atmosphere is cozy. Looking for something for a hard to shop for individual? Take a browse through Bolens, they have something for everyone!
The Children's section is one of the best I've seen, parents and educators need to shop here!
I love Bolen Books and checking out all the books. But that said, I pretty much buy all my books on Amazon, and recently its all been Kindle books that I buy on my iPad, iPhone, Kindle, Laptop, etc. Still love Bolen Books, but I mostly buy electronic books these days.
One of the great advantages of working in a bookstore is sometimes we have the chance to read new books before they are released
