The manager and regional manager engages in sexual discrimination against women. By offering women lower lower prices then men on the same books. The tend to low-ball the offered price on books. if your not getting at least 25% Go elsewhere

This bookstore is great. Although I am a fan of the entire chain, I feel the Westport store is the best! I never know what I am going to find here........browsing through the clearance selection I have found some of my favorite books from when I was much, much younger for $1.00!!! The children's book selection is great, I love the mysteries. I buy my Christmas cards there every year, and have found any number of surprises there.....calendars, games, puzzles, books, cd's, movies..........you name it, they've got it!!! (and, always at least half of cover price if not less!) The bathroom is clean, the reading areas are comfy, and I love the variety of people (both customers and staff) that you find there.

Half Price Books is a great place to spend hours browsing for book bargains. I always start in the back of the store in the clearance area. You never know what you might find and many of the books back there are only a dollar or two. If you're looking for something particular (especially newer popular releases), you might have to make a few visits before you find it there, but that just gives you more excuses to go back!

This store always has a great selection of the books that you would need. BUT the staff is less than helpful in any questions you might have regarding where a particular type of book might be located. They just point you in the direction in stead of going with you to help.

PROS: great selection
CONS: not-so-helpful-staff

What book lover could not relish getting a good deal on the latest books. Although most books are used and at half price, a few new books are available at drastically reduced prices. Just to browse the aisles is entertainment for anyone who enjoys books. You never know what you will find.

If you like books and prefer purchasing to borrowing, this is the place for you. With a selection that pretty much includes a little of everything, no one should have trouble finding what they want. The store is well lit and organized by subject posted on big signs hung from the ceiling so there really is no trouble finding your subject. The staff is friendly, but non-invasive so you are left to browse at your leisure. If you do find you need help, and employee is usually pretty easy to find so that isn't any trouble at all. The prices are, to me the best part. Being able to find hardback books in new condition for only a dollar is, one of the best things for me. All their books are at least half off the publisher's price though and some for less. They also carry CDs, DVDs, records, VHS tapes, computer games and more and since a lot of the merchandise comes from regular people selling their things to them, each store is different. The only problem I have is that sometimes their organization throws me. For example, a book of Maya Angelou poetry could be in poetry, african-american studies or women's studies, you can never be sure. Despite that, this store rivals any big chain for selection and atmosphere and you just can't beat the price.
