Popular fiction bookstore takes your books "in trade" for 25% of cover price in store credit. Has a good selection of books and is well organized (everything is computerized). The problem lies with the fact that you never know how much credit you have, because the owner periodically "adjusts" peoples' credit if it gets "too high". A close friend of mine had hundreds of dollars in credit one day, and $30 the next. Because you sign no agreement, there is no guarantee that you will get the credit you are promised. Your best bet is to use your credit right at the time you take your books in. Pretty sad when local business owners take advantage of customers like this.

This is a new owner. If he thinks you have too much credit available to use to "purchase" books he arbitrarily deducts it from your account. He doesn't tell you he is doing this but when you go in thinking you have credit he tells you that you don't have any credit or a rediculously low amount.

They claim to buy used books for great prices, but they never want anything I have. I even tried to sell a rare, antique Shakespeare collection and they didn't want it at all. So, if you want to shuffle through piles for used books, this place is as good as any (although I prefer Goodwill--better prices), but if you want to sell your books, stick with e-bay.

This store has piles and piles of books. Not necessarily in any order that would be helpful in finding them. But, if you have time to sort through the stacks you might find some gems. Bring a bottle of cold water with you because their ac system is not reliable and it is usually hot in there.

This family owned store has tons of books, from sci-fi to romance novels. Here you can cash in your old books and in return receive store credit to use to buy books from the store.

Book Nook is a used book store which will buy your old books off you. The going rate for buying your books is 25% of the cover price, and they sell the books for 50% of the cover price last time I was in. However, they don't buy all book, just the ones missing from thier vast collect.
