You can find me here almost every weekend. I'm a total bibliophile and spend A LOT of money on books but I'm also a full-time student so being able to "swap" books is huge for me. Yeah, it's small but they can order anything you want new

Twice I've arrived 20mins before closing to pick up a book and they have locked the doors early and will not let more customers in. And they will only trade in books you have bought there. They will not buy /let you trade in books they you bought new else where. In the past it was a good store. Now it seems to be their hobby, which doesn't make it convenient for serious readers.

Business Response:

I wish Ingrid had called me when this happened so I could have addressed the issue, this is not acceptable way to do business and I would have liked to have spoken to her about it. Also, we do take trade-ins for books you've purchased elsewhere (otherwise how would we keep our shelves stocked), however, we are unable to take everything due to limited space.
.

On the plus side, this is probably one of the newest, brightest, most well organised used books stores you'll find. However, it comes at a cost to the consumer. Although still stated on their website, they don't give 25% store credit for books, it's nearer to 15%. Books are highly marked up, eg. $5.00 for a used $7.99 book, (that's close to a $1 more than any other used bookstore I've been in). It would be somewhat understandable, if you were using store credit alone to pay for books but you are also required to pay 20% cash on all purchases. Sorry but I'll take my books and my business elsewhere ....

If you like those genres you probably do not like the same kinds of bookstores that I do. I was not impressed with the selection at this store as it was mostly romance and popular fiction that many people swap or give away.

I think this place is great!! You can go there and buy used books at great prices, then when your done, you can sell them back. It's fun to go and look through the rows and rows of books. they are separated by age, genre and so on. You know exactly where to go to find what you are looking for!! It's definitly a place worth checking out :)
