“BEWARE UNMARKED BOOKS”
Reviewed January 9, 2014

Overall, a lot of books and as long as they are price-marked they'll honor the price. BUT BEWARE, if you find a book with an unmarked price (and there are many), be sure it'll be marked SKY HIGH when taken to checkout, why? Well, because 1) they are sloppy and didn't mark it when it came in; and 2) well..you want it. NOT VERY PROFESSIONAL. They'll even refuse to sell an unmarked book, until they've decided and looked up, and marked up, the book.
