I went in the other day to pick up a book for class. The place is unorganized-books line the floors, the books are simply shoved onto shelves where they fit, not in any sort of order. When I asked for help, the workers walked me over to the section and had me fend for myself. It took me five minutes to find the book....it sells books for 60% of original value. If you need it quick and cheaper than amazon, it's an option, if not go somewhere else.

They All Carry Guns!

The Book Nook is a bastion of right-wing patriots. Shop with a feeling of safety, as most of the time, over half of the employees are packin' heat. Some nights...all of them. Approved by the owner, too! Sold him a little Smith & Wesson Airweight years ago. \r

Even the part-time weekend employee, who happens to be a beautiful blonde college professor, has a Glock! \r

lots of books for cheap, but not the best quality

The book nook sells used books, cds, movies, comics, etc. This is one of those bookstores that is packed from floor to ceiling, relatively well-organized. Prices are reasonable. My two complaints are 1) they often mark books with a bright stamp that says "book nook" and makes the book obviously used. This makes it hard to shop for books as gifts, where other used bookstores have books that can pass for new. 2) their policies for selling books and using credit are unclear...view more. Sometimes they let you use credit, other times they don't, other times only up to a certain amount. This needs to be put in writing. But for a part of town that doesn't have a lot of used bookstores, Book nook is pretty great.view less

used books, weird buy policies

It's a given that Atlanta has a terrible selection of bookstores, especially stores for used books. Book Nook is an Atlanta institution, and they have a large selection, lots of trade paperbacks and kids books, as well as comics, cds, and dvds. But their buying policies are really strange--how much you get depends on who happens to be there and the mood they are in, and trading in credit is also tricky--it seems you can't use credit to pay for a whole purchase, just a certain percent...view more of a purchase, and that percent also seems to change with the staff. So if you need a mass-market paperback, it's a great place to shop, but not so good to sell your books there.view less

large collection

Book nook has a large selection of books, cds, movies, comics, and other printed matter. If you are looking for a book other than mass market, you might not find it, but you will probably find something you weren't looking for anyway. They buy used books and cds too, and they offer trade value that is pretty reasonable.

My favorite used book store.

This is the first stop I make when I'm looking for a book. The selection is just overwhelming. From comics to DVDs to music CDs to unusual books such as ""Celluloid Treasures of the Victorian Era,"" this store has it all. They're fairly well organized, or at least most are. Book sections are categorized and so is the non-fiction. Fiction is by category (Drama, Western, etc.) then by author. The haphazardness comes in non-fiction. While they are also categorized (History, Nature, Pets, ...view moreetc.) it ends there. There doesn't appear to be any further organization and even they have trouble telling you where to find a book. You just have to go through the stacks. All in all though, it's really worth it. The prices are winners for sure and the employees are as helpful as they can be.view less

Get It Here

If you're looking for a book or CD or video, it's worth a trip to the Book Nook. Save a lot of money by getting used merchandise that is still in good shape. I've found the same CD that sells for $14 at new stores for $7.99 or less at the BookNook.
