    but you gotta go to the one on NW Hwy - the flagship - possibly best bookstore in the country

    Nothing bears half price books for some good cheap reading...everythings at least half of msrp. Only thing is you never know what you're gonna get at each store, but that's part of the fun

    I left a note in a book here. All my secrets are in the note.

    Legend tells of a hidden book that bestows on it's finder infinite wisdom and untold riches. I think it's in the children's section.

    Amazing selections. This is a must-stop for any HPB junkie like me.

    Miranda · August 21, 2010
  • Jon B.

    NEVER bring your used stuff here. Craigslist & a garage sale will quadruple any money this shockingly shady store will. We're talking ONE PENNY for books, 50 CENTS for vinyl? Go to Hell.

  • Lucky Ducky Dogs - Fun with Meat!

    Something has changed here. Never felt more taken advantage of before. If you plan on selling books, plan on getting $0.01 per item. That's right, a penny per book.

    Make sure to grab a treat or lunch at the cafe. I recommend the Rembrandt on a croissant, with an iced coffee.

    The used books and overstock selection is fine. I find architecture books a few years old but they are still priceless to me.

    Robert Dwight Charter · October 22, 2011

    If you're looking for a popular book that's quick to leave shelves, the super nice & helpful employees will check in back, there might be one they haven't put out yet. Worked for me!
