Check out these photos from local bookstore DittoDitto


If you're feeling a little sick to your stomach that Royal Oak's once epic monument to the written word (AKA Barnes and Noble) is now a Buffalo Wild Wings, we have a little balm for your wounds. DittoDitto is a little (and we mean very little) bookstore on Trumbull in Detroit that's restoring our faith in book-reading humanity. Browse through these images of DittoDitto or, even better, head over and check out the place in person. 

DittoDitto is located at 1548 Trumbull St., Detroit.
