While in Vegas I always like to visit a quirky little used bookstore and in the past always went to Albion. Discovering that they were closed, I looked on-line for another....they are getting few and far between! The dead Poet sounded interesting and it certainly lives up to its name. Lots of interesting artwork and couches to sit in and piles of books everywhere. While it is well organized and clean it gives the charming impression that the owners would rather read than sort everything out. Both of the women at the counter were fun to talk to about philosophy and life. I really enjoyed my visit and left with warm feelings and a stack of interesting inexpensive books. All the place needs is a lazy tomboy cat lying on one of the chairs and it would be perfect!

I'm taking the time to write this quick review about Dead Poet Books because the people that work there do offer great customer service.
Knowing nothing about books, I decided to stop in there to find some information about a rare book I had recently stumbled upon. I was lucky enough to have Linda working at the time of my visit. Basically, I walked in with a book in hand and she was kind enough to spend a few minutes of her time researching information about my book. After spending a few minutes on the computer she came back to me and briefly explained what she had found about the book I had. Not only was she very knowledgeable about what she was explaining to me , she explained it in a way that any customer would appreciate. Thanks for the awesome help Linda. I really appreciate the time you spent. You guys have even gained a customer....I saw a few books that will make excellent future gifts. Austin

Pros: The old library look, feel, and smell!

Cons: no website

I have been going to Dead Poet Books since they were used to be located at Sahara and Valley View, and with the move to Rainbow, the selection has gotten even better. The staff was always friendly and helpful every time I visited, and the selection of books was always wide and varied. With the closure of Albion Books, this is one of the best remaining locations in town to find that book you wanted, along with LPs and other esoteric items.

Pros: Large selection, helpful staff

Cons: Some items not available (such as Heinlein)

.

The first thing I noticed when I entered was a man speaking very loudly on his cell phone and the staff appeared to have no problem with this. Not five minutes later when I asked my friend a question, I was chastised rudely by an older female staff member for being too loud.

The selection was mediocre at best. These are the types of books you can find just about anywhere, and for cheaper to boot.

My friend I came close to closing time, at about 5:30, and staff hounded us to leave. Working in retail, I can understand a few subtle hints to let a customer know that you are closing soon (turning off music, shutting one of the doors, etc.), but actually walking up to a customer at 5:50 and telling them, "We close in ten minutes, please finish soon." is just plain rude.

I was very unimpressed with both the service and the quality and quantity of product, and will never shop there again. I recommend trying the used book store on Rancho and Charleston (their name escapes me), or Mike's Used Books (they don't have too much selection, but they are very cheap and friendly) on Tropicana and Pecos.

Dead Poet Books is one of the two used bookstores that I know of in town. It is centrally located in the southwest on Rainbow Boulevard. The store has a friendly staff, and unfortunately for them, pretty long hours everyday of the week. They also have books in a wide range of subjects. I would recommend this store more than the other not only because of the location, but also the staff.

When I first walked into Dead Poet Bookstore, I was really impressed with the decor and lay out of this bookstore. This is a very clean and well organized establishment. They are stocked with many hard to find and out of print books. The staff is friendly and very helpful. I am looking forward to doing long term business with these people, and I do hope more patrons visits this store. You will really appreciate its beauty.

PROS: Customer Service, Helpful Staff, Prices and Selection
CONS: They can squeeze a few more books on their shelves
