Not only is WordsWorth the ideal of an independent bookstore — a cozy, carefully arranged shop manned by a staff of bibliophiles quick with help or suggestions — it's the last of its kind in Central Arkansas. Here you'll find a nice selection of first editions, a strong sampling of literary fiction and easily the best children's section around. New books of local or regional interest typically feature in the store's prominently displayed bestseller section. A small but strong selection of magazines sits in the back. Like its competitors, WordsWorth's branched into gifts — T-shirts, candles, soaps, lotions, calendars, puzzles, journals and more. Usually, the store's quiet except for the quiet tweeting of caged finches in the rear of the fiction room.
