This is a huge used book store, but every time I go in, it's the same books. They never have anything new or what I'm looking for. Don't bother asking them if they have a specific book, they will just point you to the genre section and let you look for yourself. They do have a huge collection of comic books, the most I've ever seen in a used book store.

As used bookstores go, Books Do Furnish A Room is truly unique. They carry a wide selection. You can buy a cookbook, a sci-fi novel, softcore porn comic book and a book of literary criticism all at the same time. Ambience-wise ... well ... it's interesting. Improved, certainly. More light, better layout, and it's no longer smoke-filled. But the exterior of the building still has that meat warehouse feel. The parking lot is still unpaved and rough. The prices are great ... but the selection is really why you go back. I was collecting Robert E. Howard's Conan books for my brother one Christmas, and this was the place that hooked me up. But I'm not going to browse there for fun. It's definitely more of a guy's bookstore.
