I've stopped in to Books Inc., a couple of times while my girlfriend went shopping. I really like the size of the store. It's not huge like B&N or Borders, which is a good thing. They sell all the books that you see on the New York times bestseller list, so as long as you're not looking for something rare you'll probably find what you're looking for. They also have a decent magazine section. I'm your typical guy so I like to look at car and sports magazines and they have all of the mags you would expect them to carry. The only negative is that their prices can't match the bigger chains. I know it's good to support the little guys, but if you're cheap you should go to amazon or Borders.

I love going to this bookstore because I know I'll always find what I want, they have great staff, and I'm supporting a local bookstore (instead of Barnes Noble).They have books, magazines, calendars, foreign books and magazines, DVD's, gifts, greeting cards, and probably a lot more. It's located in a convenient place, so you can grab something to eat on the Ave before you settle down and read (they have great "benches" in the kid's section wherre you can sit down and various chairs around the store).

The windows of Books Inc. of Burlingame Ave. seem to change every week, depending on what the theme of the week is. It is charming and informative to walk by this bookstore just see what the latest window setting is all about. Of course, the real treat is actually going inside the store and enjoying the well-stocked shelves of new and established fiction or non-fiction books. There also is a decent selection of pop periodicals, from science to economics to gossip. Thankfully, this store also carries the NY Times, daily.

PROS: Well-stocked, nicely kept bookstore.
CONS:
