This has been one of my favorite bookstores since I was a kid. I could spend hours looking around in this place and I never leave without spending some money. The staff is always helpful and friendly. You can't beat the prices.

Books, books and more books, in every conceivable category. You'll lose track of time, place and dimensions while you browse. I am a schoolteacher, so I find a lot of affordable books for my classroom (10% discount!). My husband is a history buff and science fiction nut, so he is satisfied as well. (As a military vet, he also receives... More

This is a great store with lots of eclectic feel to it. There are plenty of used books, movies, DVDs, even vinyl records. We almost always walk away with something useful when we go there.

Thousands of books on hand in every genre imaginable. You can spend a big part of a day just browsing through the aisles and shelves looking for whatever reading interest you may have. Laid back atmosphere -- it's what a book store should be. They also carry movies and music in various types of media. Located on the historic downtown... More

History, mathematics, you name the subject and they most likely have a book about it. Located on the square in a building that was built as an opera house in the early 1900s.

This is a used bookstore like any used book store, except for the following: 1. It's in a college town so it has a lot of art books, sheet music, technical book and other non-typical used bookstore fare 2. It's HUGE - 3 stories, packed from stem to stern and top to bottom with books, glorious books 3. It's on... More

Located on the downtown square in Denton inside the old opera house, Recycled Books is similar but a great complement to the numerous Half Price Books Stores in the DFW area. Recycled is larger than all but the Flagship Dallas HPB store. Books: Unlike HPB, they don't have a lot of overstock new items nor the high volume of new... More

This place is massive, you really could get lost going through each of the rooms. They not only have books, but used LP's, sheet music all kinds of stuff. Some of the books seem a bit over prices for used but you can find some cool things !Still open 7 days a week....fun place !
