This is a serious review. I went into 1/2 books on Brown Deer Rd with about 70 records and 10 books to sell. The lady behind the desk explains to me that they make an offer based on the demand and condition. Alrighty I thought so I went to

My Family is filled with bookworms and I am quite thrifty so we adore HPB especially this location we have frequented many locations but this is one of the best especially in the area. I love Franklin & Easton Press leatherbound books and have found some awesome deals here Vanity Fair Easton Press- perfect condition $12.95, Wuthering Heights Franklin- $16.95 still in wrapping and many others under $25 great deal for $100 books.Current Magazines for the Hubby $1.98 ea.normally $6. along with many other deals the clearance rack is superb you gotta dig but its worth it books,dvds,etc. for under $3 and they aren't all crap they base it on how long the item has been in the store and how many copies they have so you can get some great deals. Also if you have a bookclub the clearance rack is perfect we based a years readings off books on the clearance racks. The Lovely Bones- HC- $2.00 ea X 10 members = $20 for a whole bookclub worth of books thats just shy of the price for one copy new.
WE LOVE HPB :) Plus its green

pay attention to the prices on the back of some of the books; they try to sell people the Barnes and Noble classics for either the exact same price or a few dollars or cents more; how is that Half Price? they try to get away with it by blacking out the price on the back, but as an avid reader and a regular customer of various bookstores i know what Barnes and Noble charges; say you have a B&N classic that at B&N is $7.95, Half Price Books will charge $7.99; incredibly disgusting behavior. I can understand if they have an first edition Faulkner or something to charge MORE than the original price, but otherwise that's just geniunely opportunistic behavior; they should be ashamed of themselves. Not to mention that in regards to another form of B&N exclusive books (collections of numerous novels by one author for $12.95) they snip the jacket where the price was and charge, you bet, $12.95!

other than that MAJOR fault, it's an okay place; the inventory is rarely updated with anything actually worth while, you'll rarely find any really great gems like some Bernanos or Simenon, but if you want a bunch of Danielle Steele novels, knock yourself out.

I've gove to this store quite a few times because I like to read and it gets expensive when you read lots of books. If you love to read like I do, go tho this store for their many selections.

This is nice big store filled with all kinds of reading treasures. The books sold here are priced a lot better than Barnes and Noble or Walden Books, and who cares if its used? If the book is in good condition and at the right price, it is definitely something to buy. The staff are friendly and will try to help you find a book if you know what your looking for. Sometimes they have what you want and other times they don't.

This bookstore has a wide selection of books, software, cds, records, etc. The selection is slightly larger than the Brookfield store -- but it's always different. If you're looking for a place to browse for books, this is the place. Always check here before going to Barnes & Noble. The prices are great!

PROS: price
CONS: hard to find the exact books you want at times

You can really get some good deals at this store. I like it because it doesn't have a used bookstore feel. It's a nice facility and the books are usually all in good shape.

This Half Price Books location has a huge inventory of books, dvd's, cds and records. Their prices are prety good too. Their staff could be a little friendlier...sometimes you almost feel like you're truly bothering them when you ask a question.
