You can find the usual books here at medium prices. They do not have as large as a selection as other bookstore but you will most likely get what you want. If you need help, just ask the staff. They are helpful and nice and would always want to assist you.

Acorn Books is the size of several full-grown oak trees and contained many volumes. I have rarely found what I was looking for there, but have sometimes found some other interesting books.

The books generally seem overpriced to me, as if it was an antiquarian bookstore (when the selectivity is more than of a thrift store with more attention given to classifying and alphabetizing).

I wouldn't say the staff is unfriendly, but they generally seem indifferent to books and to customers (Codys and A Clean Well-Lighted Place for Books show that this is not inevitable, and, for that matter, the staff at Borders seems more helpful, firendly, and knowledgeable than that of Acorn).

Especially if one is looking fora 1950s or 60s title that time has forgotten, Acorn is a place to check out.

PROS: many books, well organized
CONS: overpriced, undernourished
