    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.

    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!

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.
