Best Overlooked Bookstore

CSU Bookstore

There are few places for bookworms who live and work downtown to get their fix when they've dusted everything on their shelves. But Cleveland State's bookstore, one of the few in downtown Cleveland and an oft-overlooked shop, is equipped to keep both shelves and head stocked. There are no baristas slinging coffee, and this is no DVD superstore. But the front of the store is a traditional bookstore, with a wide variety of popular selections you'd find at any Borders. The back, meanwhile, is a haven for post-grads who crave those college days: a warehouse of books from CSU reading lists, so you can freshen up on 20th-century British literature, get the lowdown on that Hundred Years' War, or even research your red-light camera ticket with the latest legal texts.
