    I love nerdy books but the people who hang out in that section scare me...

    Shea Antoinette · November 10, 2013

    Megan White · October 1, 2013
  • Seasons 52

    With great deals on almost any book you can think of, what's not to love? They also have music scores, textbooks, teaching method books and sheet music for the teachers and musicians.

    Become a creature of habit. I am. I'm back here today, enjoying Guatemalan Antigua dark roast, browsing books and faces, and listening to Pandora while my battery charges

    The people about Black Forest Coffee are so nice (and pretty)

    Reed Avalon · August 27, 2013
  • David C.

    Lots of open seating in the back corner that everyone seems to forget. Good spot to get a good read.

    David Cockburn · August 26, 2013
  • Rebecca G.

    Great deals! And they have CLEARANCE sections!

    Rebecca Gregory · August 18, 2013
  • Anthony M.

    Make sure you know before hand on what kind of book you want. Lol

    Anthony McCowin · August 13, 2013
  • Tammi

    You can get lost for hours in this massive selection!

    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.

    Jon Banks · July 27, 2013
  • Jon B.

    Come trade in your books/records if you want to get absolutely robbed! Less than 6 dollars for a dozen GREAT vinyls, 2 DVD box sets, 5 books, and 5 CDs...Keep your shit, people. It's not even worth it

    Jon Banks · July 27, 2013
  • Jon B.

    This location is pretty shady about how they accept used materials. They won't tell you how much for what unless requested and pay way less than most places. Better off keeping your stuff, really.

    Jon Banks · July 27, 2013
  • Jason G.

    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.

    Jason Gray · July 21, 2013
  • Josh K.

    This one is Book Mecca.

    Great employees!

    Kelly Beacham · June 23, 2013
  • Ximena B.

    The coffee shop attached to it is forgettable and their pastries are old. You're better off grabbing your books and going across the street to Starbucks

    Ximena Baker · June 1, 2013
  • Maria A.

    Fashion section is great for historical fashion photographs

    Maria Alonzo · May 10, 2013
  • Daniel

    The best half price for sure. Also, the latte is actually really good

    Daniel · April 18, 2013
  • Tara N.

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

    Tara Nedbalek · April 6, 2013
  • Allison M.

    I ADORE this store! awesome prices, fair trade-ins and super spiffy staff. Cool place to chill too- (free wi-fi!)

    don't bring your wallet/purse or else you're going to end up buying something

    Take the time to be systematic and you will find hidden treasures.
