Before books, students had to tote engraved granite slabs all over campus, which is why the most accomplished philosophers gave the best piggyback rides. Enjoy lighter reading material with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of used books at Sorensen Books.
Voted #3 Best Used Bookstore 2010 by Victoria News, Sorensen Books brims with a vast selection of gently handled tomes. Stack up a selection of mass-market books ($1–$5), trade paperbacks ($9.50–$11) and hard covers ($15–$150), all inspected for quality and dried money petals before gracing the shelves. Rare, out-of-print titles also gravitate to the premises, which also boast a brawny selection of non-fiction reading that illuminates subjects such as architecture, world history, and the childhood nightmares of Eugene Levy. Sorensen Books happily accepts new books on consignment, granting bibliophiles the option to trade in their old standbys for flashier models.
