Wide array of books

If you're looking for a book, look mo further. I can honestly say, I don't know how they wouldn't. Two floors full of bookshelves and stacks of books. A bibliophiles dream.

Searching for good ole books
Sep 2017 • Friends
What a gem! Lots of old books to brows through. Friendly staff and plenty of books to sort through. No parking...have to find street parking but worth the effort. Books easily labeled and plenty of step stools to use to reach the high shelves.

If you love to look at real books, this is the place.

Kind of reminds me of a minature version of Powell's in Portland. 2 stories of books stacked to the ceiling, new and used. All genre. Separated by subject matter.
I could have spent hours here browsing.

Large well organized used book store
Oct 2016 • Couples
Probably the largest used bookstore in the west outside of Powell's in Portland. Well organized with broad selection of books in every conceivable category. Another much smaller but not to be missed used bookstore in Eugene is Tsunami Books on Williamette Street.

Best and biggest bookstore in Eugene. There are so many books to choose from it's hard to take in...at least for me, someone who loves all kinds of books and wants to buy them all.

Two locations - campus and downtown. Tremendous volume and knowledgable staff. Plug your meter well because you'll browse the time away. Truly one of the best used bookstores in the northwest.

A wonderful New & Second-Hand Bookshop!
Sep 2013 • Solo
Eugene is a fine little community thanks to the immense University of Oregon nearby, and one of the true delights of a "college town" is the prevalence of bookshops like this one. We're talking real books here -- books on PAPER, not CDs or silly electronic doodads. Its aisles are bursting with volumes, both clothbound and paperback, and I defy anyone over the age of eight not to find a book to their liking if they would just hunt long enough. The staff is young, nerdy-hip, knowledgeable and very helpful. The prices are very reasonable.

Their sister store, on Willamette Avenue about half a block from the Eugene Amtrak station, is even better. Stacks of books, piles of books, veritable mountains of books! I discovered this venue when, waiting for my train, I realized I didn't have a book to read for the journey. I thought I might just skip inside and pick something up, but there were SO MANY wonderful volumes in this tiny shop that I almost missed my departure! Worth a visit, even if you aren't taking the train somewhere. There are cool-looking cafés next door and across the street, the perfect spots to sit down and peruse your purchase.
