what a memory.....i wanted a dvd that i couldn't find anywhere. i asked the girl at the front desk. she thought about it for a while, then came over to me and said she knew she recently saw it come in. a little while later, she came with the dvd in hand. i was soo happy.
very nice people.

I agree good selection, knowledgeable staff, friendly, helpful and if they don't seem to have what your looking for, they will do a little research to try to find it. But, I don't agree with the trade in value that is paid for used books. Too low, might as well haul your well read treasures to Berkshire Books the owner is fair and if you choose store credit its at a substantially higher amount.

This large bookstore has discounted new bestsellers as well as a huge selection of used paperback and hardcover fiction. The staff is very helpful and friendly. I like history and entertainer books, and they have big sections of these. There is an enclosed kid's section in the front of the store. I commute to my job, and buy their used audio books on CD at half-price, and they nearly always buy them back from me when I am done with them. They will call their other store when they don't have what I want in Concord, and have the book sent to Concord for me. I love to browse in this comfortable setting while listening to their background music, a mix of classics, jazz, and easy listening.

I like most of the changes at my favorite indie. There's more books and a lot of the crap is gone but I have had some bad experiences with someone who works there sometimes. She is loud and pushy and never lets you finish a sentence before she interrupts you. The rest of the people there know the books and help you if you want help and respect you if you are just looking but I don't go in if I see that this woman is there. It just isn't worth the hassle.

PROS: good books and good prices
CONS: one person who can really ruin your visit

This is the largest used book store in Contra Costa County. They buy and sell new used and rare books. They pay more per book than any other used bookstore around. (They also buy more than any other bookstore around as they have 3 total bookstores within the tri-valley area. ) The neat thing about them is the fact that they do have brand new books that are discounted as well as the used books that are 1/2 price. The staff is quite knowledgeable as they all seem to be readers. If you are a reader you have to check them out!

Not quite a large selection to choose from. It is a used book store but all their books are in really good condition, so they tend to overprice their newer books by quite a bit. Their older books are a lot more affordable however, and if you can find the title you are interested in then very much worth buying. The place is often empty however, very quiet and they play no background music and since the place is so small you feel like youre constantly being watched. If you talk to the personnel however they are very nice and helpful however. Not a lof of children's books.

Their selection at this store is pretty decent if you're looking for certain generes, though it can be lacking in others. Their prices are pretty decent there for most of their things, and they even have new books there at a discount. However, when you're selling them your used books, they really try to take advantage by offering you a real low amount.
