“Browser's Paradise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Don't expect to have an "in & out" experience here. Once inside, the selections of topics is almost overwhelming. Not only are there books of every topic and description, but you'll find
a wonderful selection of cassette music tapes and video cassettes of every genre, CD's DVD's,
of all types. "How to books", technical manuals, self improvement, you name it and it's here somewhere. On one of our visits, I found a small room (more like a closet) and lost myself for I don't know how long, but it was long enough for my wife to come looking in fear I was lost.
Really, this place is a treasure for the browser. Prices a very reasonable, but I never get out of there without nearly breaking my budget. Plan extra time, relax and browse, you'll not regret it!

“Best of Denton”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Recycled Books is the best part of living in Denton. It has a great selection with good turnover. With five major universities within about 40 miles, it ends up with an impressive collection of books. Go to dinner on the square (or nearby), have ice cream at Beth Marie's, then end the evening at Recycled.

“Been Going Here for Years! Unique and Great!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

Recycled Books is a very unusual store. My favorite bookstore in the world is City Lights in San Fransisco, and I've got to say that it lots of ways, Recycled is Denton's little City Lights! Plenty of used books of all subjects. The building used to be a clothing store, I think, so it's a real maze of small rooms, stairways, and galleries. Spend an afternoon there; you won't regret it! Oh, yeah, they buy used books and records, so you can make some money to buy more books!!
