I was extremely pleased with the selection of their books, the condition of them, and the reduced price. While the prices are higher than some other places, customers receive a credit for all books returned which reduces the total price. Staff is very friendly & helpful. I very seldom purchase books elsewhere now, & have referred several friends to the store.

Great paperback book selection. Trade in books you've already read for an even lower price. If you read as much as I do, it's a screamin' deal!

I like the new Saturday and longer hours at night. Thanks for helping me get books that I thought were out of print and without paying shipping. I also like the generous buy back program for store credit, so even if I don't have a lot of spending cash, I can still get the new releases of my favorite authors.

From Our Editors

Book Trader Caf? stacks more than 16,000 titles of gently used books on its shelves, combined with second-hand DVDs and CDs that transform the inventory into multimedia brain food. Literary works and academic books on art, architecture, and paper towels line the store, their spines inviting readers to sink into their vivid and educational worlds. A cult-fiction section assembles an apocrypha of fringe scribes, photography books tempt eyes with their luscious pages, and a children's-book section tempts kids to burrow into a fort of words. Most titles average $4.95, and staff carefully curates each one to ensure a quality recycled collection sans fraying bindings or torn pages. While Book Trader Caf?'s inventory rotates frequently, the online store lists troves of its selections and lets bibliophiles reserve books by phone. With new old books in hand, patrons can stroll over to the caf? to enjoy them and further sate their appetites for letters by reading the menu.
