I love this store, and I can go nuts with out going broke. The neighborhood scares me a bit, but this is the closes store to where I live. better safe then sorry I wouldn't come down to this store alone in the dark. That said I have never had any problems inside the store. Inventory changes fast so every time I come I find something. Staff is helpful and easy to find.

I have noticed that it seems like each half price books carries different types of books more or less then the others. I'll have a day once in awhile where I 'll go to all of them to see what I can find and I get surprised by what one store has a ton of and another doesn't have. But that's the down side of a chain is they share inventory. There are upsides to that as well.

I love shopping at this store, you can find so much at such good prices. They also offer an educators discount, so if you are a teacher be sure to sign up. The selection is large and they carry something for everyone. Be sure to check out the clearance selves,they often have really good book at a really low price. They carry DVD's and VHS at a low price also.

PROS: Low prices, helpful staff, huge variety
CONS: can't always find what you are looking for

Half Price books is a great used book store on Milwaukee's Northside. The staff is great and knowledgable and will always help you find what you need. One of the great secrets of this place is their large collection of vinyl records. Original prints of the Beatles, the Who, and other classic rock bands as well as music from nearly every genre (and most cost only between $2-$5)

PROS: It's half the price! What's better than that
CONS: Sometimes they don't have what you need.. its hit or miss

I love going to this location to find a book that you most likely can't find at Barnes and Noble. The prices are great and the selection for children's books are amazing. I was looking for books to add to my daughter's collection and it was nice to find the classics and the books I remember reading myself. They have newer movies for sell also I bought the SpongeBob Square Pants movie for less than $10.00. I think this is a great place to get what you need if you're seeking specific genres or titles. If you want new releases you might want to check out BN but you will fall in love with this store and the fact that it is not overcrowded with coffee drinkers hogging all the good seats!!

The buying and selling of books is a wonderful idea. Not too many books do I actually reread, so I find this place very resourceful. Paying a lower price rather than suggested retail price is a profit in my pocket in the long run. They have many different topics / books to choose from.
I do have to mention that selling books and such back to the store doesn't always come out profitable on that end. Can't quite figure out the method to the pricing on the sell-backs.

Half Price books has something for everyone! Their prices can't be beat. They buy books, magazines, CDs, movies, and computer software so if you need a few bucks in your pocket bring on by the stuff you just don't need anymore. They always have unique books or calendars I haven't seen anywhere else. It's so much better than paying half price for a book when you know you won't read it over and over again. Their staff is friendly and eager to help find something for you.

PROS: Great prices
CONS: Selling to them doesn't always make you much profit.
