More than rude! The seedy owner verbally assaulted me on the sidewalk because my dog stood in his weedy planter to look in the store window to spot one of his cats. The guy was yelling, cursing, and threatening! Now I understand why everyone I have met in Auburn won't go into this store. This man is surely a maniac.

i have been going to their bookshop for 15 years, and i find the service unequaled as well as the quality of the used books that i purchase there. it is the cats that roam freely that i love the most, each with the most friendly hospitality. what a nice mom and pop operation.
also, the owners have very nicely offered to collect signatures for Initiative-1068, the Washington State Marijuana Reform Act.
this intitiative to legalize marijuana in Washington State will get us on the November ballot....with enough signatures (241,000). go to sensiblewashington.com for more information.

My favourite bookshop, period. I have been purchasing books from Comstock's for over twenty years. Enormous selection of military books. As the name of the shop indicates, David is also a bookbinder. I've had at least two books bound by him, and found his work to be excellent.

Here my horrible service story. I have been there 3 times & it was smooth I turned books got credit. Bought more books. My third time I hadn"t used all my credit I had like $2.49 or $3.49 after the books I picked. I was given my card with the credit remaining. Heres where my great idea went bad. I thought this is great take in books read & get new, what a great concept. Since I had the credit went in to get more books I had 3, went to the counter & handed my card with credit & books, waiting for total. I was asked how I got this card. I told him, you from my credit on my last visit. He claimed he wouldn"t give me the card with credit. How else would I have gotten it don't know where to buy it. He was mean & nasty. I finally said take money off its not worth this 3 bucks. Flash forward, today a year & 1/2 later. I brought books again I figured that was just a bad day for him. You know the elderly. It happened once maybe just a bad day. I support Auburn business. So when he totaled my amount to $13.00 I asked if I see them. I wanted to get an ideal of what really was worth bringing or sending my sister. He got mean and beligent about how I was wasting his time & money. I was trying to explain myself. When you bring $175.00 in books & get $13.00 I would rather send to my sister not get a lousy damn quarter. His wife finally stood up and said to him you aren't even given her a chance to explain. She did apolize and told me to she would just leave. Now mind you it has been a year and a 1/2 since our last incounter over the $3.00. So I leave. When I get home my husband asked why am I so upset and crying. I tell him, he calls them to find out if this is normal business practice. Then She get snasty & starts lying to him. That I am there all time hassling them over price (that was my 4th time). I never said anything the first 2 times , just got books and the third was when he acused me of writing a $3.00 credit on a paper he supposedly never gave me. Not nice

Pros: trade in for new books

Cons: mean people who would rather not listen only yell.

Comstocks is your typical used bookstore complete with Cats. Pricing is good and the books are in good shape. Comstocks also purchases books for a decent price and you get a good bonus if you take store credit instead. Comstocks Book Repair is also excellent- if you have a treasured book that needs some TLC theyll do a great job.

This is a really cool place to go for some great books. they have some really old stuff in there and stuff for everyone. They also buy books and give you pretty good money for some of the better taken care of books. the people are sometimes a little cranky depending on what is going on in the shop but I love going there to look at all of the books and find a great one.
