Small cramped used book store. Utilizes a shared parking lot with 7/11. Parking at a minimum at times. The street to the west is One-Way.

Large assortment of titles. Friendly staff. Will take your discarded books. They keep your name on file and when you buy books the next time you get a percentage off your next purchase rather than pay the regular price. They also have used Cd's, Video & DVD's.

One of the few surviving book stores on the southside of Chicago. Allison is great (the owner) and the place employs tons of book nerds, just what you want in a book store.

A great selection, Bookies is a nice old bookstore. Every time I come here I have to buy whatever books I might not have, because the books fly off the shelves. It won't be there next time I go, and I'll be angry at myself if I didn't buy it last time!

Bookstore are a rarity in this area. I love a good book store and this fits the bill. They have a great selection of new and used book and can order anything you need that isn't currently in the store. The service is great. The prices were good. Although I've found better deals on used books, I also had to work for it, this store is well organized so you can find what you are looking for. If you aren't coming in the middle of the day call first to make sure they are open. Seems whenever we go later they aren't open.
