I travel a lot and can always find a few paperbacks here to take on a trip. I have also traded in books that I've read and don't plan to read again for credit. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They tend to stock the kinds of books I like but I do notice that in general, variety is not their strong suit. It's mostly just what's popular with mainstream readers. They do have some new books and we were able to get one of the new Harry Potter books here when all the local chain bookstores were sold out.
