Editorial Review – Quintessential used bookstore with shelves piled high; has more than 70,000 titles, from fiction and non-fiction to old pulp novels.
The classic bookstore! – At last, a book store where I can't reach the highest shelf (and I'm over 6 feet tall). The is crammed with towering shelves of musty used books on every subject imaginable, full of near priceless rarities and yesterdays pulp alike, and everywhere not occupied by shelves is consumed with stacks upon stacks of more Books!
The most comprehensive stock of used books (easily twice the variety of any other U-District used bookseller) and with a staff that knows its stock (something uncommon in Seattle used book stores.) Since the tragic loss of Shories, this is where I now turn to get my books if they aren't at the U. Bookstore.
If I were to invent the quintessential used bookstore in my mind, it would differ little from the quirky and classic Magus.
