    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

    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.

    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.
