This place is not your typical bookstore. You will find books stacked from the ceiling to the floors here. I have no idea how they can stay in business with all of those fire code violations. However, this place would not be unique if it was not like how it is now. If you are looking for older books or... More

It is a magical place, with lots of books. I love being there because it makes me feel at home. Hundreds of books all in one place.

This used bookstore is made for book lovers. From the resident cat to the esoteric assortment of books, there is truly something for everyone. It is wall to wall, ceiling to floor -- if you can't find something to read here, you just aren't trying. The assortment of books is astounding.

Actually, Hyde Brothers Bookstore really does appear in an award-winning, 29-minute Romance movie called THE BOOK AND THE ROSE. So, if you've ever seen that film (There's a trailer on youtube,) you might want to visit the real bookstore for the fun of it. I was there just a few weeks ago, and it's pretty much the way it's always... More

I have been here before, and I do believe that the owner DOES seem to care when you're one-on-one with him, but his staff are atrocious, selfish and up-tight. The old woman who works there chastised me like I was her child when I accidentally walked somewhere where I was not supposed to be, then kept her nasty attitude during... More

I love going to Hyde Brothers. I can usually find what I am lookin for. You can take in your used books and get credit toward other books. They are very knowledgable and helpful when I have had questions.

I love books and I have sold many of my used books to Hyde Brothers over the years. I think the books are reasonably priced except the music books which I feel are over priced because I think they want almost as much for a used music book as a new one. I notice some of these same music books... More

I loved my experiance at Hyde's. They have many books that are hard to find. It is very fun to go and just meander through the books.

Books books and more books everywhere! Prices are more then fair. Selection is vast and varied. You could spend hours and hours perusing the store. Recently was in Fort Wayne for a mini vacation. I like checking out used book stores in cities I go to and this is a good one. If in the area I highly recommend a... More

Thanks to a review on TripAdvisor, we went to this Bookstore. It is very impressive with quite a collection of books of many subjects. Don't expect your local bookstore with new books and wide aisles. This is your old-fashioned, stuffed from floor to ceiling books, with friendly helpful staff. If you love old books or just reading, you will enjoy... More
