    book lover heaven! They sell heavily discounted books and like those that commented before, this place is huge and there is more variety than you ever imagined.

    The REALLY good DVDs are downstairs locked up in the glass counter by the stairs. Be prepared to pay more

    New arrivals are located on the first shelf next to the cash area, next to philosophy.

    There's a comic book section hidden away up, up stairs. Stairs are found on the second floor along the wall. Northeast lol

    Easily the best used books store in the city. Not accessible, though - step at door.

    Don't go looking for anything specific but you'll always find something great to buy :)

    If you like books, visit BMV. Even if you're broke you can hang out and 'browse' (i.e. read) for hours.

    Biggest used bookstore chain in the city. They try to organize alphabetically, but with constant perusal, things can get out of order quickly, so set aside some time to hunt for that elusive book
