The Triangle has a wealth of used bookstores. Books on Ninth stands out from the pack for its organization, cleanliness, and trendy location in the midst of Ninth Street's alternative shopping district. However, I walk in with hopes to add to my collection of science fiction and fantasy. And I usually don't walk out with anything. The selection in my interests doesn't turn over much and doesn't hold much that is hard-to-find. I've found the staff to be ok. The prices aren't great because unlike most area used bookstores, the owner charges 60% of current retail. And many books have the price marked out with a black marker which hurts the value of the book to me. Especially on a volume in otherwise-pristine condition. Worth a browse, but not a Durham must.
