Always Buying Books is a treasure trove of reading happiness. I love this store!

I was in town over the holiday and my dad took me to this gem of a bookstore. I scored a first edition of a Hunter S Thompson collection for next to nothing. Later that day I returned with an old friend and we both found a handful of collectible editions by Tom Robbins, Ezra Pound, Ernest Hemingway, and Henry Miller. The only possible weak(ish) link was the lack of a philosophy section. I’ve visited bookstores from coast to coast and in Europe. This place holds its own with the best of them. I’ll be back.

Wonderful used book store! Great selection of books! I especially liked their Children’s section. Lots of PB, MG and YA as well as nonfiction.
