Used Bookstore 11/15/2005

This out of the way bookstore is a gem. Located in the rear of the 1712 Sherman building it tends to get overlooked by passersby. To find it, keep a look out for the alley, hence the name Bookman's Alley. Prices are reasonable. Staff is very knowledgeable and helpful. Check store hours before going - I believe it is open late one night during the week. more

Interesting Book Store 8/9/2005

Bookman's Alley is located where one would think - in an alley. It's location is probably one of the worst parts about it - the alley it's located in is very dirty and dimly lit, and is even pretty scary as it gets dark. The store itself is very small. The selection of books is, for a lack of a better term, unique. It's a good place just to look around, but only once in a while. more
