I love books and this place has such an amazing atmosphere. The book collection is impressive (especially theology). I visited other famous used bookstores like Powell's or the Strand in NY. But Stevens' place is special to me. Hope you enjoy it as well!

Stevens Bookshop get changed a lot in last months. It is not anymore store with books from floor to ceiling with high prices and only theology... They have excellent children section with very cheap books and also SF and homeschool stuff a lot... really i enjoy it... I am regular customer there couple of years but now is a lot of things changed... better - prices and customer service is very helpful. They are very willing to search for books and if they don't have they order it from online. The best is the new place for sitting with sofas and water... Last time I read there almost half of the book:)

Stevens Book Shop in North Raleigh is one of the best used book stores that I've ever been in. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. While the prices are not as low as some of the smaller bookstores, the overwhelming volume of books that they carry is the reason that I shop there.

While other bookstores, whether new or used, may have one or two bookshelves on religion, the heart of Stevens ranges from theology to Christian living to Greek and Hebrew texts. Browsing this store is a must for the layperson who are interested in religion and to the clergy who's on a budget.

The selection of books from history to the classics to scifi and fantasy are minimized either. You can probably find everything you want here without fighting the crowds at the mall to get to the big named brand store only to pay the same price or even more.

Stevens is also generous in their buy back policy. I have on two occasions sold books to them for store credit and I've never been let down by the exchange. Mostly because the books that I trade in are a little outside of the mainstream and so may not be of interest to smaller bookstores who focus on what's popular.

To sum it up, this is my favorite bookstore, and I will be back many many times.

I found them to be quite helpful. It is tipical of the mom and pop bookstore era. It is a bibliophie's heaven. There was no uniformity of pircing. In some instances, it I found the same book in the same condition priced differently. Also when compare to other second market bookstores I found Stevens Books to be a bit pricey.

The reason I give Steven's Book Shop a three-star rating instead of a 4-star rating is because of the customer service. It's not the friendliest, most helpful book store around. Steven is very brusque, and does not go out of his way to make people feel welcomed. (There is no "Welcome to Steven's book shop. How can I help you today?" "Are you looking for something special?") However, the bookstore has tons and tons of used books. You can probably find rare books here, too. Some of the book prices are expensive compared to ordering on Amazon.com. I don't think Steven is aware of Amazon.com prices in comparison to his prices. Can't say it's highly recommended, but definitely worth checking out.

At first glance, Steven's used book store is a bit...overcrowded. The bookstore (staffed by Steven himself) has books piled floor to ceiling. Some aisles are even so full that they are impossible to look down for a book, and Steven has no real database of what's available. Steven does has a good selection of autographed, and first editon collector books, so if your a collector his shop is worth a try.

This is truely the best used book store I've ever found. There must be close to one million books here. The books are everywhere ... on shelves, in piles in front of shelves, on tables, in display areas, there are just books everywhere on every conceivable subject. To truely benefit from a visit to Stevens you should be prepared to spend hours digging through stacks of books. This is a store that book lovers & collectors can appreciate.
