I had a friend that went to school in this area. Quite often i would hear about how good the bookstore was. I was in University City so i stumbled upon the Penn Book Center. The outside of the store is very appealing. And the interior is pleasing as well. The store offers various books for college courses and reading for pleasure. The prices are just too high for me. I did enjoy absorbing all the information i could on various topics.This store is good for obtaining sources for but not for purchasing.Do not spend a dime in this store because you can find better prices.
