Besides the wide selection of used books, there is a nicely curated collection of new comics. A lot of good comic classics, and fun issues of science fiction magazines like Analog and Asimov's.

I stumbled upon this place on New Year's Eve to search for books on Ancient Egypt. I found plenty of nice books and purchased them. It was quiet and has a very cozy and nostalgic feel to it. I would recommend this place and will return!

Smells delightful! Lots of books. Also carries VDs and DVDs. Exactly what you expect in a used bookstore.

Cozy and full of interesting volumes, well worth a browse and close to 9th Street for refreshments.

This bookstore is a neat little place with a whole lot of books set up by genres to make it easy to find what you are looking for. Each section is set up by authors last name to help you find that particular author you are searching for. They have an abundance amount of vinyl records again set up by artist. I wasn't greeted by the employee, as he was busy working in his work area and I was there to look for books. When I had a question about where a certain genre was located, he politely showed me where to find it. I will be back to look again in the future. A must check out for any type of reader.

A true bookworms delight. Books as high and low as the eye can see and no one trying to help you. You don't even have to talk to anyone if you don't want to. The atmosphere is hypnotic and relaxing. Love it!

Really cool little place. Great assortment of used books and vtnil. But the reason I keep coming is their comic book section. The best Indy section in Durham. Awesome discount graphic novels and much more. The staff are super friendly and helpful. A true hidden gem.

Fantastic selection of off the beaten path books. The owner isn’t wildly social and has rarely engaged me, but browsing is fun anyways!

Very quaint little store. Clean and well kept. Odd selection of books, though. Missing some SciFi staples but a fantastic comic section.

A friend suggested this for old manga floppies and it delivered. A surprisingly large selection of older alternative comics. A really nice place to browse for anything that might strike your fancy; the owner was very nice. I love stores like this.

If you love searching through old books to see what treasures you can find, this is a great bookstore for you. Plenty of old books, pulp novels, and even comic books. Definitely a must stop for the Intown visitor, and a regular visit for the locals.
