Encore is on the other side of town, so I've only been there once. It's huge. Westcott I mostly like for the two store cats. You can't help but like a bookstore with a fat cat sleeping right in front of the Hemingway books in the H section. Okay, you get the books for half the price at amazon, but you can't pet their cats.
