  • If you guys really want reasonable price and neat used books for perfect reading then this place is amazing. I mean “neat” in both senses of the word. The most organized used bookstore I’ve ever been to. An excellent source of academic, literary, cultural, and art history publications
  • I found a cookbook I'd been looking for for $20 less than the market price, and it is in perfect shape! They have a huge amount of books in many different categories to choose from. They also have cool deals where you can get 20% off if you wear a shirt from them or use one of their canvas bags. The basement is currently under construction, so this limited a few of the book genres they have, but that didn't inhibit my satisfaction with this place.
