Funny story, I worked for seven years at Mr. B's Bookery. It was my first job ever (I was 15 and the owner paid me in books). Now I work at the Third Place Books in LFP. Once a bookseller, always a bookseller... All of these bookstores are amazing! Thanks for starting the list!

Jackie | 5 comments It's not a book store, but I love the used book section of the public libraries. My favorite so far is the Lynnwood Library. Also the Brier Library. 50 cents each is a good price. Also, its almost Garage/Yard Sale season.
