Such a fun place to spend a couple of hours. I came in looking for a particular book and left with that and 10 more! You never know what you'll find. The staff happily answered my questions and brought me to where I wanted to go. I could have left with the book I had in mind going in, but I found so many more cool books I couldn't help it! I don't know what other people are saying about the staff being unfriendly. I'll definitely be going back!

I can't say much about this store that's good, except that they are huge and have a wide selection.

However, the comics are kept behind a chained area (yes, a freakin' CHAIN!) and plenty of militant signage to keep theft to a minimum. While I realize that every store owner has to deal with shoplifters, you really want to feel like you can browse without having to ask special permission to view the merchandise--or just to browse and not feel like you're presence is unwanted from the get go.

The employees seem to resent working there, and who can blame them?

I won't go back.

Cons: Do you like being treated like a criminal?

This a great book store. You have to be careful because if you love books like me, you might get lost in all the possibilities. Nice, easy location.

I love this store!!! I came just looking for a light read and came out with around ten great books. Their three floors of books had books from every genre from military history to science fiction. Highly recommended!

Pros: Friendly service and free parking

I called to ask and see if they had a book available. The man that answered the phone said, "Uh, I don't think we have it, Call a newer store." and hung up! It was very rude! He didn't even check to see if they had the book, he told me to describe it and then hung up on me. I am glad I did not waste my time and drive down there. AVOID IF YOU CAN!

I happened to notice this book store by chance one day on my way to work. It on a busy crossection of the town and not the easiest place to park. However I returned once during lunch break.They have a pretty ineteresting collection of books ranging from fiction, science, sociology, polictics you name it. They are decently categorized. I ended up buying and old edition of Tom Sawyer. Prices are decent too. You should definitely check this place out.

A very popular location, you can except a good flow of inventory from this store. Located centrally on University, it is a fun place to search through. Bookstores like this can be particularly dangerous, if you don't watch yourself you may end up leaving spending twice as much as you intended to. Average prices.

One of the best spots for used books that you're going to find in Saint Paul. Three stories and a real landmark in the city. Particularly good with art books, comic books, old playboy issues, etc. A little skimpy on poetry, folklore and mythology, as a note, however.
