    Neither sentence is a question, so the question mark is incorrect. Otherwise, both sentences are fine, although it's quite normal to make "bookstore" one word.

    Both prepositions work as long as the corrections JMurray gave are followed too.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
