As one book store after another faces the fate of being closed down, a traditional book store is hard to locate in town nowadays. Today, I was lucky enough to walk into a plaza and saw a sign of "Half Price Books." It is a new store just got opened recently that I had not noticed before. I ditched the furniture store that I was planning to go. Instead, I followed my instinct and walked into this book store. I couldn't believe my eyes. I saw a wide range of books, LP, CD, audio books on the shelf.
Shortly after I entered the store while I was still browsing through rows of book shelves, I noticed someone who just entered the store with handful of books asking to sell to the store. Later I found out from cashier that she's here to sell her used books to the store and that's how the store source the book to sell to customers like me and others. Any one can be a buyer and also be a seller. What a brilliant, environmental friendly idea it is!
One more thing that impressed me is the LP records they stock in the store that can't be found else where. Don't even know what an LP is? Click here.
