    Half Price Books: Did you know you can take in your old books and receive cash for them? Earn some quick spending cash or turn around and buy another best seller!

    My absolute favorite store. I can't leave without buying something. Be sure to check out the clearance shelves! I always find great books for only $1.

    If you have claustrophobia or fear of crowds, this place is always PACKED!

    Whoa 45 minute wait to return books so be prepared to kill some time! Also you won't get that much $$ but worth it for a true south Austin "cultural experience"

    Stock up your shelves for less: Clearance-priced kids’ books can be had for $3 and under – some as low as 50 cents. Powered by ParentsConnect.com

    You can usually find movies, games, and music pretty cheap here, too.

    I am not allowed to go here. I find too many things I can't live without. Best place to purchase books in Austin.
