“This Place is Huge!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2013

This is the flagship store for the entire Half Price Books chain, and it’s huge! I make regular visits here, and it’s one of the places I bring out of town guests who are looking for something to read or who have been trying to find a specific book. Books are arranged into very specific sections, like “nautical” and “natural disasters.” In addition to the staff working in the various sections, there is a help desk located in the center of the store. If you don’t know where to find something you’re looking for, the staff is very helpful. The last time I went, one of the staff led me right to the books I wanted without having to stop and think where they might be, even though the books were a little obscure. I usually bring a list of books I’m looking for when I go. It’s so big that I can start to feel overwhelmed if I’m just browsing. Besides books, they also have movies, records, and software. There is a small coffee shop where you can relax and read, or meet up with others in your group if you decide to split up. The store is dog-friendly, so you can bring your dog in if it’s well-behaved.

“Must Stop Here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2013

We travelled to the Dallas area for a concert, but as usual Half Price Books is a must stop for us...this is absolutely non-negotiable to my family of bibliophiles. Plus it helped that we had a coupon this time! All of us love this book store for a variety of reasons including a great selection of a variety of books, big open areas to enjoy browsing/previewing the books, a small café for when you get a bit tired, a super selection of Clearance/sale items. This time we stayed about 3 1/2 hours...usually we stay longer...yes it is that good! Happy reading.
