Four floors of heaven. I spent the better part of my Friday afternoon here browsing through hunting and logging wholesale catalogs from the '50s and '60s- Filson ads, knives, snake proof boots, and over-under shotguns oh my. On my way to check out I remembered to take a few pictures.
Take a date here and really get to know her. If she says she doesn't really like to read, I don't know what to say. Blame whoever set you up. Or yourself for asking her. At least you got to know her.
I ended up grabbing a cool illustrated, abridged copy of The Golden Bough and an Army field manual from the '60s. More about them later. They have a copy of Salinger's complete uncollected short stories for $195 if anyone wants to be my sugar mama. (and a 1st edition Franny&Zooey I may have to go back and get for only 45 bucks)
The store is actually an old warehouse. Complete with original hard wood floors, the building itself is worth the trip. Boasting over 750,000 books, you'll always find a treasure in John King Books . If you can't find it, the friendly staff certainly can. One of Detroit's finest. Check it out if you get the chance, I promise you'll have a great time.
