You can probably get all these books online, but then you won't have the chance to flip through them beforehand in a nice, comfortable store. Employees are helpful and knowledgeable, and the selection is good. I always walk out with lots of things I didn't even know I wanted! Buy yourself a book and then read it over some coffee and dessert at the little restaurant/coffee shop next door (not sure if it's affiliated with the book store or not, but one gets the feeling that it might be).

You'll find this fine store across the street from the Berkeley campus. They stock books from the various university presses, and the selection is really good and thorough. Luckily, the knowledgeable staff is there to guide you through it. You can place special orders here as well. UPB is definitely worth a stop (or a call) before looking online, especially if you need things quickly. Most books are sold at list price, but it's worth it for the satisfaction of walking into a brick-and-mortar store and leaving with the book(s) you want.

If you're an academic, this is paradise. Every book that comes off of a major university press is either here or just waiting to be special-ordered from here. The prices are on par with what you'd expect to pay for a university-press book--not great--but when you need that obscure discussion on medieval tapestry, the politics of Beethoven, or a Foucauldian discussion of just about anything, here's where to go.
