This is a nice bookstore located right off of Martin Luther King and is in a very historic looking building. The books at Title wave are retired library books and they are super cheap. They have a huge selection with everything available and they won't leave a huge dent in your wallet. They even carry LP's (remember those?) VHS and audio tapes, as well as magazines, books, encyclopedias, even snacks. The people that work there are very nice, they don't keep a record of what they have like a normal library though, that's the only con. This basically looks like a normal library but instead of borrowing, it can be purchased, very cheap.

PROS: Price, price, price! Friendly staff, selection
CONS: No parking

The Title Wave Bookstore is where the library sells their discarded books for cheap prices. You can find cookbooks, CDs, VHS tapes, old magazines, and even reference books. Everything is neatly organized and easy to find. They have a big kids section and if you are a teacher, this is a great place to fill your book collection with juvenile nonfiction. The prices are reasonable, but a bit on the higher end. You can find books cheaper at Goodwill, but if you shop at Title Wave, you are supporting Multnomah County libraries, which desperately need the funding.

Title Wave Used Books is a clearninghourse of books from the Multnomah County Library system that have been removed from circulation for a variety of reasons. Some are in great shape, others not as great shape but they are all at bargain prices.

There are all kinds of books here, as well as video and audio materials, magazines, etc. The children's selection is actually quite good and we have picked up several books from there.

The only thing I don't like is that the books are sometimes pretty raggedy and nearly all have the barcodes and "property of" stamps on them. I'm a little picky about my books so I'm not wild about how these look, and I also don't want to get them confused with our regular library books if I'm not paying close enough attention.

In spite of this little inconvenience though, it's a great place to browse, spend some time and get some new-to-you books at some great prices. Plus you are supporting the library with your dollars when you buy something here, so that's an added plus.

The Title Wave Used book stores sell old books from the Library. Here you can find a very wide selections of books that may interest anyone. The profit from selling the books will go to support the Library and buy new books for library. After discover this little bookstore, i made my book purchases there from now on. Not only it's cheap (expect $2, 3 dollars books) it's also for a great cause. I do want to support my library. What I don't like is that they didn't take off the library barcode stickers on the books, so what concern me is that if I buy these books, people are going to think that I steal books from the library. I don't want people to think that. I think they should work something out or developed somekind of special easy-peel-off barcode sticker on those books.

We go there after swimming lessons and it is really great to watch how excited your kids get about reading. The prices are really, really low, but I find myself over-buying, so be careful. The building is beautiful, but they dont always have the selection I would prefer. But what can you expect for that cheap?

PROS: cheap
CONS: books sometimes torn

If you collect books like I do, catch the wave at Tidal Wave. I have gone down to Portland on many occasions just to find some rare books. I have found books they might consider rare but to me they were valuable in that I could not locate them any place else. The price was right also.
