Left my ebook device at home and got stuck looking for the author I wanted in 3 book stores. Should have started at Moe's, they have everything. Nice aesthetic, too, and I like their free poetry broadsheets.

Well worth visiting when one is in Berkeley. On several floors. It's rare for me to come out without buying something. There is a good selection of foreign language books, I think on the top floor.

This is a nice, clean bookstore with four huge floors of used books. It has a well-organized eclectic selection of both fiction and non-fiction works. The staff is very helpful.

I found Moe's walking home one day and had to go in...and then I stayed for hours! I guess as a doctoral student, you could say I'm a bit of a nerd, but I am also very experienced at buying used books!
