This is for the most part a used bookstore. The prices for the most part, are half of the listed book price. Many other used book stores offer a much better deal, but can't compete with Half Price's selection. If you are looking to rid yourself of books, donate them to a library, or perhaps a small indy bookshop. I traded about 25 books- harbacks included- and they gave me less than $4.00. I was shocked, but lesson learned.

PROS: Selection, occasional $1 discount books
CONS: Price, trade in values, lots of overstocked books from other stores

When I came by this location of Half Price Books while killing time one evening I was struck by how big it was, even after shopping several times at the Half Price Books location in the Univ District which is pretty big itself. They had a much bigger used foreign language books section, for one thing, plus quite a few used records to browse through.

I frequent many of the Half Price Books locations and I especially love the fiction section at this location. They also have a great film section. There seems to be aisles and aisles of fiction and you can easily find something you want to read. All paperbacks are half their imprinted price. There is often great deals in their clearance section where you can find books for under $3.
And if you are looking for VHS tapes they have quite a large selection for cheap prices.

I love this store because they have a great selection of used books.. they will also buy your used books from you. I had tons of books that I had already read and wanted to get rid of them.. they gladly took them and with the money from the books I bought a few new ones.

Half Price Books is a huge 2nd hand bookstore with a vast selection located on Capitol Hill. You'll have a pretty good chance of finding a book that you are looking for here. They also have CD's, videos and (my personal favorite) records. Wont get too much money if your trying to sell your used books though.

I'm actually not familiar with the Seattle Half Price Books, but I know the one in Redmond is fantastic; I'm sure they're all good. What a chain! They have a pretty vast selection, and they're so cheap! If you haven't been, you definitely need to go.

My, the selection is awsome and the prices, are well....half priced! What an amazing deal! This place is located in the "Cool" Capitol Hill area in Seattle. It is sort of hidded between Denny and John st., I believe. The fact that this store is quite large makes sense why there are so many book selections. You must check out, or you're missing out. Your wallet will be happy.

PROS: size, selection, location, parking
CONS: none

I can't say enough good things about the Capitol HIll Half Price books. what I love most about it is that they not only have an excellent selection of used and discounted new books, they have lots of other items. They have videos, DVDs, CDs, computer software, and my favorite, a video games section! I love to play games, and love that the premium games they sell are so cheap compared to buying games new.

They also are a great place to buy small gifts, and for greetings cards, journals, stationary, and calendars. They only negative thing about this place is if you sell your old books to them - they give you really bad prices.

PROS: Great selection of not only books, but many different items. Friendly staff, excellent prices compared to retail bookstores.
CONS: Don't give you very good prices when you sell books to them.

Part of the fun in going to a book store is the prizes you find. Half Price Books is awesome! I've always got a list of books in my purse that I would like to buy, but don't want to spend the money that bigger bookstores charge. So half price is the first place I go. Even if I don't always find the titles on my list, I always find such cool books. And the prices are great. Sometimes in the front of the store they have bargain buys for one or 2 dollars. Cheap! I can spend a lot of time in Half Price, but it never seems to be a lot of money. The only thing is their used CDs should be a little cheaper.

PROS: Great prices!
CONS: CDs a little pricey

While the deals are seriously amazing, the chances are pretty slim that you will find many contemporary books that you are looking for. Thus, its always best just to go in there with out a particular book in mind and just browse the huge selection and pick out a few books that you probably wouldnt find elsewhere.

I find this bookstore a great little bookstore to shop at. When I am looking for a certain book if I am not able to find it, the workers will go the extra mile to help me find it and if they can't they will help me find some thing similar if that is what I want. I would recommend this bookstore to anyone that is looking for a deal

Half Price Books is the type of store that makes you wonder why you would ever shop for books elsewhere. Aside from the library, this is a book lovers paradise. I bought everyone on my Christmas list a gift here because the prices are sooo right. Another great thing about the store is that they will buy or allow you to trade in your used books for new books. You must try this store out- it's not like other used book stores.

I love browsing Half Price books on rainy Saturday mornings! The store is quiet, smells like new books, and packed full of everything from new and used reads, records, CDs, videos, DVDs, computer software, and the like. I will often times gather up a stack of old books and trade them in for something new that I havent read before.

The Half Price Books on Capital Hill is amazing: two stories in a brick building filled with bookshelves. They have a great selection of books and poetry, as well as offering a decent selection of used CDs and movies, a display of calendars and cards, and of course, beautiful coffee table books. And of course, the name is the best part: all the books are half what you would be charged at a mainstream bookseller. Not only does the Capital Hill Half Price have parking, it's a block south of the wonderful B & O Espresso.
