Besides being a useful replacement for a missing bed frame leg, a stack of books also makes you look smarter, and can stop a crossbow arrow if you're being targeted by any misinformed vampire slayers. Feed hungry eyes and deflect undesired darts with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of books at The Bookman in Orange. Tended by a friendly, helpful staff, The Bookman's collection of new, out-of-print, and previously owned page-turners bridges multiple genres and offers avid readers endless opportunities to legally eavesdrop on the hoarse voices of long-unread words crying from their quires. Since 1990, the store has successfully harnessed the power of printed word to grace local text consumers with spine-tingling spinebounds on subjects ranging from bullfighting and Shakespeare to bonsai gardening, insects, and Kansas.
CityVoters included The Bookman in their top three bookstores in 2010 and their top two bookstores in 2009 and OC Weekly named it Best Used Bookstore in 2008. The Orange County Register featured The Bookman and Yelpers give it an average of 4.5 stars.
- Customers may now browse through eight-foot-tall shelves, 50 cent racks outside the store, or piles of books stacked against the inside of the store’s back door. The warmly-lit shelves and walls are decorated with wacky knickknacks like a clock that reads, “whatever,” giving the store a homey vibe.– David Hall, The Orange County Register
- I love this store. Having recently relocated here, and being a lifelong lover of books, this place is a treasure of a find for me!
They have quite a selection to choose from, great prices, the staff is very helpful... You can also search online and/or make a wishlist of things they don't have but which you want to be notified upon their arrival. – David R., Yelp
