Love it - a place to trade what I no longer need for what I really want. Granted the trade-in prices are not that great, but it's value for free and the low selling prices, coupled with the extensive inventory more than compensate. Since one can never predict what will be on the shelves that day, I visit several times... More

This place is always a delight if you enjoy poking around looking at used books. They also sell plenty of new items, music, kids toys and books, video games and assessories, and many times they have items on the shelf that are fairly new at a much lower cost. They also have plenty of chairs in the nooks and crannies... More

Friends took me here as we're all book lovers. This place has thousands of used books in almost every genre, all at half-price or less. But: they also have used audio/video gear; used cameras; used instruments; used CDs and vinyl; jewelry and souvenirs. There are nice places to sit and ponder books, and the whole atmosphere is bright and fun.... More

We had not been in for about a year now, and found the store even more fascinating than before. I was looking for a wall calendar, and Barnes & Noble had nothing good left, so we stopped here. We planned to stay 15 minutes, and we stayed over an hour. I doubt there is another bookstore/etc. like this anywhere. They... More

What a find. You could spend all day looking around at Bookman's. Something for everyone to find. Wish we had a Bookman's in our area.

The book a store has a great book selection, (better than chair stores), and CDs, DVD,Blue Ray. Bookman's also has a very good bike repair shop at other location on East Side, (on Speedway). I had a analog Speedometer installed on my Retro BMX bike, with Red Mag Wheels, and Red Tires. It was not easy, but they were able... More

If you like one of those hidden places that only the locals know about, then BOOKMANS is for you if you like books, CDs , DVDs Movie memorabilia and in some stores just about anything exchangeable. My purchases included Game of Thrones collectables, difficult to obtain older box sets, and great s/h CDs. The quirky section at the back is... More

I love to visit bookstores whenever I travel and Bookman's is in my top 3. I usually visit the Ina location but all locations are great. Amazing selection ranging from books, memorabilia, movies, board games, used electronics, the list goes on. It's great to spend an afternoon here and just look around. I usually buy books but I also enjoy... More

Everything in this store seems to be half of the listed price. Besides books, records, sheet music, insturments -there were gifts, stuffed animals and home decor. My husband can spend a whole afternoon in a book store so he was in hog heaven here. The only complaint is the staff is always on the PA system calling for each other... More

Whether you've never been or you're here for a visit, you must go to Bookmans. It is our unique used bookstore with a little bit of everything you can imagine including chairs to sit down and relax with a book. It might take you back in time when you see all the records and old movies for sale. Bring your... More
