A wonderful used/remainder bookstore and the largest Half Price Books store in the country (so i"m told by someone who has been to the Houston, New York, LA, etc.stores).
In any case, a HUGE improvement over the University District or Bellevue stores, especially the former, which is very cramped.
Very roomy, high ceilings, well-lit, wood floors and paneling, large windows, chairs. The most comfortable, relaxing bookstore in the city. Wide selections in many categories. Great prices, occasional store-wide sales. Hours are very good, until 11 pm nightly!
Usually have a recent shipment of Konemann, the German publisher of coffee-table art books at bargain prices.
This in undoubtedly would be the most pleasant, relaxed bookstore--new or used--to just walk around, browse, etc. were it not for the sometimes obnoxious piped-in music and the occasional very raucous conversations behind the counter (I wish I could carry on my own mini-party at work, too).
I don't sell my books (I donate them), so I can't comment on that aspect...
One or two of the staff members could be a little less apathetic. Otherwise all the staff is upbeat and polite.
