    For book lovers, Recycle Book Store is a great place to shop at. They sell used books and decent prices and have almost everything someone could ever want. They have a huge history section, sci-fi, fantasy, general fiction, cooking, comics, DVDs, travel, children's - you name it, they have it! For the classics collectors, they have a whole section in the store dedicated to books in their original bindings, reminiscent of a library back in the 1800s. It's a book lover's paradise. If you have books to sell, drop on by, get store credit, shop away, and buy that book you've always wanted to get. It's a great place to go shopping if you're looking for rare and out-of-print books. This place is HUGE, so expect to stay awhile, and say Hi to the tabby cat roaming inside the bookstore - she's friendly!

    I thought the residing Campbell location had plenty of great selections, but this is my new haven. A gold mine!
    The great thing about recycled books....they cost a lot cheaper than buying a new one. If you don't mind the binding a little broken in and bent corners of a cover, this is particularly a true gem. The downside, none of the books were categorized in a helpful way. Took me a long time to rummage through a section of fictional books. I would've thought that they would categorize by author. Oh well! So, if you're in the area and want a good book to read but at a low cost....check it out here!
    Btw...make sure to be friendly with the cat and don't let it out. They love the lil' one!

    First to Review

    Wait, what was that store we just drove by?
    A bookstore.. a used book store... a used book store that may have the books I'm looking for.... hmmmmmmmmmmmm
    *flipping a U*

    We park and jay walk over there and look for some books that I may or may not be jonesing for. They have a ton of every thing I was looking for. Before I knew it, I was neck deep in sci-fi, fiction, manga, and then some. Unfortunately, in this particular case they did not have exactly what I was looking for, but what they did have was a number that were looking for me.
    ;D

    Hmmmm what is that across the other street? Is that where I found great breakfast burritos that I know and love...
    XD
