This was a good deal, but I wouldn't do it again. The selection at Bank of Books wasn't great, the prices were inflated for used books, and the staff wasn't very helpful.

I definitely recommend this place we spent a few hours in there exploring. It’s the first time I didn’t feel the need to be on my phone in a long time.

I love this store, but at the time I used this Groupon (last October) they didn't have a scanner for the voucher, so the clerk had to hand-enter the code, and she wasn't very comfortable with the whole transaction. It was more time-consuming than it should have been. Having said that, though, it's still a great store that people should check out, whether or not they have a Groupon.

The store is wonderful. It is mostly used books so they don't have everything you are looking for, but there is a vast selection in which to choose. It was a great deal and I will use it again in the future.

This is a great book store, it's too bad it seems to be perpetually going out of business. The young man working was very good and knowledgeable on the books I wanted. The young girl did not seem to even want to be there, it was really strange. Anyway, it took about 15 minutes to checkout because the way they had to enter the groupon was absolutely ridiculous. It didn't make sense at all.

Excellent place to quietly browse and more than likely come away with a few books. All used or local writer's works, records, tapes, movies and maps. Not a real good metaphysical selection, and far as I could tell primarily Christian oriented religious and even self help books.

Great shop; worthless groupon. It can't be combined with store discounts or trade credit, so you're not getting a better deal than paying normally. I presented the groupon after the clerk rang me up, and my total almost doubled as he removed their current in-store discounts. He also acted annoyed that I'd purchased the groupon. Uhh, I'm not the business who offered it...

The employee was sleeping in the store upon arrival and after a greeting went back to his nap corner! The books were over priced and the Groupon didn't cover tax, so I lost $5 of the voucher value and had to pay $5 sales tax. Save money and a the sketchy experience; go to the Friends of the Library bookstore in Camarillo.
