Serenity W. below is a nitwit who understands nothing about the economics of making a used bookstore work -- he/she probably had books that the store simply had too many of or were, in their estimation, not books their customers would pick. "Reasons unknown to me" -- why not ask? This is one of the best used bookstores in SoCal, and I go to them all. The staff are courteous and the selection is is superb -- I read sf, fantasy, crime and horror, always bring in about 100-200 books, and they always take 90% of them -- even if it's a bit out of your way, so not pass up The Bookmark at your peril, if you care about good used books!!!

My family has been to the Book Mark several times over the years. It is, and will continue to be an affordable alternative to purchasing new books from Barnes & Noble. The exchange method is really not rocket science. They are most likely picky about the types of books they take in as they know what types of books will re-sell. Sounds like good business to me. I'll continue to exchange books at the Book Mark.

I have to say that i am very appreciative of the Bookmark. I am an avid reader, and save so much money by buying previously owned books. I have never been able to walk away without at least 10 books--mystery,adventure,crime and medical novels, as well as biographies and such. I don't care for romance novels, but there are plenty of those available as well. I also find the staff to be quite friendly and helpful. It's definitely worth checking out!!!

The system used for book exchange is confusing and just down-right stupid. If you bring in sci-fi books it only allows you to exchange for another sci-fi book and ext. regarding other categories. They are VERY picky when taking books. We had exceptionally well taken care of books that they would not take for reasons unknown to me. It seems they are only interested in selling and exchanging romance novels. I do not recommend this place at all it was stuffy and unfriendly and god forbid you come in close to closing time because you will be ushered out ASAP. Just stick to getting used books from amazon.com it's a lot less painful of an experience!
