Books & Textbooks

What do you think of when you think of a used bookstore? Do you think of rows and rows of used romance paperbacks?

There’s nothing wrong with a used romance paperback! (Or a new romance paperback, for that matter.) But while we do have a great selection of romance of all sorts (historical, contemporary, paranormal, series, etc,) our selection of books goes far beyond that.

We have fiction of all sorts, from mystery to thriller to westerns to science fiction and fantasy, not to mention graphic novels and manga. We have non-fiction organized into categories like business, reference, self-improvment, history, and even humor and games.

And kid’s books! Whether you’ve got a toddler who’s enjoying board books to a young adult reader who’s discovered Harry Potter and Hunger Games, our extensive children’s section will keep your kids reading from preschool all the way to college.

Buy & Sell Used Books

Used books are how we started this business in 1974, and they’re still a big part of our stores. Stop in—we think you’ll be surprised at our wide variety and great selection!

Buy & Sell Used Textbooks

Speaking of college, did you know that we buy and sell textbooks? Check with us first before you either buy or sell your textbooks—there’s a good chance we can sell you your textbooks for a lower price than the college bookstore does—and buy it back for more!
