Annies is a good place to get your books, htey also have good prices on ballons. YOu can usually get all that you need for books there and they are helpfull at finding you things. It is a smaller store , comparable in size to your walden's books, but alot more personal and friendly. They will also order books for you, that they do not have in. They have sidewalk sales sometimes , which are a great opportunity to get books cheap, they will cut off the right hand corner during these events , but you save alot of money.
