While Half-Price Books is not a particularly pretty or comfortable establishment, it's enormous and has a tremendous selection of not only cheap second-hand paperbacks, but clearance-priced brand new hardcovers, coffee table books, video & computer games, vinyls, & CDs. There's even comic books, rpg manuals for things like Dungeons & Dragons -- including the ancient editions from the 80s for those who want to kick it old skool, and gift box sorts of things your mom would be delighted to receive for much less than you'd spend at say... Barnes & Noble. The staff are not particularly friendly, alas, as I really do love talking books with the proprietors of the mom&pop type used book shops, but for the selection, the prices, and the occasional Amazing Find, I'll deal. Fans of sci-fi, romance, or mystery can often find cardboard flats filled with genre fiction at a flat rate for the box -- somewhere around 10c a book when bought in bulk. Novels for various long-running multi-author series (like Star Trek & Star Wars' companion series) may be bundled and offered for a buck or two for five. And for those book lovers who really just want to fill out their library with missing must-read titles, inexpensive *gently used* copies of almost every well-known novel in the English language are available. For me, Half-Price Books is my answer to the book lover's age-old conundrum: to loan, or not to loan? When you're getting your novels for $2.50, you can afford to be generous with your friends.

They are willing to assist in finding the books you are looking for. I went with a list from my son's school. I had no idea where to start looking. They helped me with where to look for all the books on the list.

This is a smaller Half Price Books than I have seen at other locations, but it is still pretty good. Nice selection and variety. I toured the kid's books section (the ones on display sell well - everything else is a mystery). They also have old National Geographics, books on tape, movies, CDs, etc. The prices are more than you will find online - but if you are just browsing and getting ideas this is a great place.

PROS: good selection
CONS: price

You can't beat almost new book for half price. There are tons to chose from, and they have an awesome kids selection. You can sit and read for hours if you want and noone will bother you. If you need help all you have to do is ask and they'll be happy to. The only downside is they don't give you hardly anything for the books that are traded in, you're basically giving them away especially if they are new releases.
