Very nice selection to choose from. Nice section on religion - your bound to find something. Pricing is very fair and are priced accordingly to the condition and age of the books.

friendly experience. The clerk greeted us kindly and was very helpful with her customer service. Upon checking out she was cheerful as if she encountered a long time friend.

This bookstore has just recently changed ownership so you all might want to give it another try. A young family with two teenage sons now runs this place. It is now extremely friendly!!

Today I stopped by Books & Books to show my teenage son a book store that was much more reasonable than other used book stores in the area. I wasn't intending to trade any books for credit, but since I had traded with another store earlier in the day, I figured maybe, since I can always find another book I would like to read, and the books were already in the car, I would see if they wanted any. The gentlemen working went through the 2 boxes I brought in and found about 20 books he would take. He said he would give me $10.00, which I thought wasn't much of deal for me at all but not wanting to be rude, or ungrateful he was taking any at all, I just went about my business browsing. When I decided on the book I would get for the $10.00 he was going to give me, I was totally unprepared for his response. He rudely told me to just pack my books back up and he would keep his. He was extremely rude, telling me how he has never seen me before (I had told him I moved to Concord), that I expect him to take all my books, but I wasn't spending any money in his store (I do not have a lot of money), and that me having used to come in his store, isn't now or good enough. I can't really say I was angry but I can say I was hurt. My feelings were so hurt I wanted to cry. So I took my books and left.
When I got to my car, I called my mom who is a regular customer at Books & Books, and told her that if she was going in there, (we had plans to shop there in 2 days) I wouldn't be joining her. In fact I will never step in that book store again. I used to love Books & Books but the grumpy older man ruined it for me. I was shocked to be treated so rudely. I hope that someone reads this and does something so anyone else shopping there isn't treated so poorly. In closing I would like to add that I used to go in Books & Books every few weeks or so and that I have spent plenty of money in there. Its too bad that customers are treated with such disrespect.

There is actually a fairly good selection here for a used book store. Some of the books are in like-new condition, and some are failrly worn, but it seems like this is taken into consideration in the pricing. Most of the time the clerk is friendly, but there is one who is always in a grumpy mood. It isn't fun to shop there then as he can be a little mean.

PROS: Nice selection of well priced used books.
CONS: Grumpy staff.
