    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 - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
