Profile

Best Used Bookstores, November 2007
 
Part of the Borders and Barnes & Noble appeal is their spacious interiors. More inviting than a labyrinth of dusty shelves and poorly lit back rooms, the palace of secondhand reading material known as Book Alley has the best of both worlds. Its open floor plan is marked by clearly legible signs and fancy display shelves on which sit disheveled stacks of California history texts, timeworn Victorian novels, throwback cookbooks, and random encyclopedias. Giving off the perpetual air of “reorganizing,” the staff is happy to answer any questions, open any of the rarity-stocked glass cases, and help you fit a book with a Mylar jacket.
