“Good selection but high prices”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2014 via mobile

It is true that this bookstore has large collections of used books, but from my experience I believe a good number of those books are overpriced, especially if you can get the same edition at a slightly higher price from Amazon or other online suppliers. Otherwise the place is clean, well organized, and the staff is attentive.

“Great used book store”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2013

A great, local used book store that has pretty much any subject you are looking for. They have fair prices and is just fun to poke around.

“A Book lovers heaven!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2011

If you love books you MUST visit this used book store while in Champaign/Urbana! It houses 2 1/2 floors packed solidly with every type of book you can imagine. Housed in an old building it is like discovering treasures at every turn.
