A must for both bibliophiles and starving students who don't want to pay a lot for their Henry James.
– Reading List
Mac's Backs features three floors of about 50,000 used and new books, with the top level devoted entirely to science-fiction, fantasy and horror. In addition, the management keeps the place stocked with the latest small-press sensations, reprints, zines and chapbooks.
More Than Books
Mac's also hosts author visits, readings and poetry slams. The savvy staff can order just about anything in print, but that's not why people patronize Mac's Backs. They come to find out what's just washed up on the shelves, a fascinating and fluctuating inventory that's the result of the store's popular trade-in policy on used (and rare) literature.
"Mac" is founder and co-owner James McSherry. While a law student in the early 1980s, he opened the original Mac's Backs Paperback exchange, a tiny nook of a store in Chagrin Falls.
