I loved the second-hand section in particular. I found this place to be wonderful because it's reasonably priced, modest and has a wonderful, cosy feel. I picked up a copy of The Shock Doctrine, because their politics selection is WONDERFUL! Calling all bookworms to Moe's!

Great place to browse for old, used books. They also have new books. A good place to look for "Lonely Planet" books.

We've been coming here since we were Cal undergrads in the late 60s. It hasn't changed much other than, sadly, Moe's passing in 1997. Moe's remains our most favorite independent bookseller in the country. Moe's got even better when it began selling new and used...More

Moe's is the best bookstore in CA. It is a particular favorite for Greek and Roman classics. But they also have everything else.

I visit Moe's every time I'm in Berkeley and I always find something new. It's very well organized, well-stocked, and peaceful. Check out the rare book collection on the top floor! Reasonable prices, especially for used books. I got a bunch of gently used maps...More

Left my ebook device at home and got stuck looking for the author I wanted in 3 book stores. Should have started at Moe's, they have everything. Nice aesthetic, too, and I like their free poetry broadsheets.

Well worth visiting when one is in Berkeley. On several floors. It's rare for me to come out without buying something. There is a good selection of foreign language books, I think on the top floor.
