    This place is a total blast from the past. I'm a huge video gamer and this place has it all; newer games, older games. Inventory always changing. Never know what you'll find. You have to come here.

    So much good stuff! Old Nintendo systems and games, every movie, video game, and book you can think of. Great toys and collectibles, and very friendly, helpful associates.

    Best of Phoenix Winner 2011: Best CD Store & Magazine Rack. Better known for used books, movies, and music, the magazine rack at Bookmans is just divine. The mags cost next to nothing. Read more

    Love going here to browse for unique items. However, I won't sell things here anymore, they've gotten way too picky and the cash value is horrible, $18.75 in trade or under $4 in cash? No thanks.

    Just to correct a couple things that are tips for Bookmans, we are open 9am-10pm 7 days a week, with the exception of some holidays. We are by NO means open until midnight.

    Another Great, nostalgic used media store. Can find classic N64 and PS1 games, along with more recent games. Also has a large variety of books and music.

    Great selection of books. Lacking in the legal literature, but great political section. Found great discounts as a English Lit. student.

    Best place if you want to buy old games or new games. There is also music, books, antiques and music instruments.

    Axel Monroy · November 28, 2014
  • Caitlin K.

    Great place to find videogames and books you can't find elsewhere. Also just a great place to sit around, relax, and read!

    Great place to buy books. Lousy place to sell to. Next time I'll just give my books to Goodwill. At least I'll feel like I did a good deed instead of getting robbed.

    Patrick Villella · August 14, 2011
  • Jacob N.

    Awesome place to spend an empty hour. Grab a comic book in the video game section and "chillax".

    Sit on couch. Sink into couch. Have trouble getting off couch after your 10 minute break is over. Complain to coworkers that you're late because its too hard to get off of couch. Repeat.

    Go to Bookmans. Browse through store and don't leave until you find that perfect treasure to go home with.

    They are open until 10 PM, and you can trade in things you don't want for cool stuff you do want!

    Make sure you know author/titles BEFORE going. Their "look up" "system" is just the internet.

    Do NOT buy instruments there nor sell them. Bad business if you do. Horrible selection and prices reflect quality.

    Only trade in stuff if you want credit or were going to toss the stuff out anyway. They don't give fair cash trade.
