Limited selection. Mainly really old, super worn romance paperbacks. Was charged $10 each for three Stephen King books that I could have bought new for less. Inside covers were marked $3, which is reasonable for used books. I only bought them because I felt dumb telling them no at the check out. When I said something via email I was told there were signs posted all over the store with their pricing. The signs say 50% off list price on book unless books are marked otherwise. So the $3 tags on the inside of the books I bought didn’t count I guess? Terrible selection, overpriced and misleading pricing. Won’t be back.
I stopped by this store to look for some kids books with my son. We walked in and I said hello to the lady behind the counter who didn't lift her head. I asked if they had some comic books and she was not very pleasant when she told me that comic books are sold in comic book stores. So I asked for Manga and she said to go to the back room and look. I have to say she was very unpleasant. Books should make people happy. The prices of books are not worth the stop over. Would not recommend this store.
They are under new management as of about a year ago. The kids' section is fully redone, large, organized and priced very competitively. They had a clearance basket of books for less than a dollar a book! The process of selling and redeeming store credit is different from other book stores in the area, which from speaking with the new owner sounds like they might give 15% of retail price in credit, but you can only redeem it on used books (not new) up to half the value of the book. I prefer ordering books online ahead of time, but if you email the store they respond in less than a day on your options. I think the kids' books I'd occasionally shop for but the other book genres I shop for I'd choose another book store due to how the in-store credit system works. I will try selling books and if the process as anything note-worthy I'll update my review.
It's mainly fiction books, they have a small history section, and non fiction section. I like how it's organized making it easy to read the name of the book. Local author section and the price is great. I just wish they had more non fiction but that's personal taste.
This was my first trip to book stop not knowing what I would be walking into. Very good selection of books. The seller is very kind and helpful, prices are more than reasonable too. I will definitely be back.
