    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

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

    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.

    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.

  • 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.

    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.
