My wife and I would live in Encore Books if we could! My family loves books in general, but there is just something... mysterious about little used book shops. It is as though all of the feelings represented in the present volumes faintly resonate through the smallish place. Encore Books especially. Tucked away in a delightfully odd spot, visiting feels more like relaxing at your grandmothers house than shopping for books. While you may lose track of time if you visit, we do not think youll be disappointed.

First time being here, it was overwhelming of books everywhere, on the floor, double stack on bookcase. But if you enjoy books like I do, then this place is like heaven. I could have been in there for hours searching for books. I did leave w 13books! And will be back for more.. I could have got more but the books I had were getting heavy!!

Lots of variety and pretty well sorted by genre. Musty odor and overabundance of books. Not very clean feeling.

Books everywhere in the floor. Almost tripped several times. Also, I couldnt find prices on the books. Im not going to grab a bunch and then find out the cost. Please clean up and price the books for your customers. It would be a nice store if it was like that.

Hands down, the best used book store in the area that I have been to so far. Ive been wanting to stop in this place for a while, just finally had the chance. They were having a sidewalk sale where everything was 25¢ or less outside. When I walked in, I realized I was in any book lovers paradise. Literally floor to ceiling books. The store needs a bigger space however, as there is not enough room to house all the books like Im sure they want. There are tons of rooms and the place is bigger than you think honestly. I wished I couldve stayed longer to browse. The lady that was working was very friendly and helpful and knew where everything was if I couldnt find it. Also, they do have a book buy-back type of rewards program that I still have to look into more, but sounds great! I will 100% be back there as soon as I can.

I love coming here! I always have a list of books/authors to shop for. Organized by genre and author, lots of floor to ceiling shelves. I always come away with a bag full. Reasonably priced (last purchase was 22 books for $86). Staff and owner are friendly!

Wonderful store!! The staff is always very helpful and friendly. Ive purchased several books over the last few years. Today I took several books in and got a yellow card of credits!!! My mother-in-law is 90 & loves to read. Her memory isnt what it used to be so were not comfortable getting library books. Encore has such an amazing selection and very affordable pricing. The credits allowed us to purchase 11 books for $38 (half the price that its marked--bought large paperbacks @ $3). So happy to support a local business. Highly recommend!

I travel a lot to all corners of the country. This is my all time favorite bookstore. When Im anywhere nearby I will go out of my way to stop in. If I know Im going to be in the area, Ill bring along any duplicate copies Ive accidentally picked up to take advantage of their generous trade-in policy. Ive never left without a good sized box of mystery novels, thrillers, or action-adventure books and very reasonable prices and in great condition. Highly recommended.

Theres A LOT to look through, and Im certain most people will be able to find a stack of books suited to their taste. It is hard to look through all of the stacks sometimes and find what you want if youre looking for something specific. But, the thrill of the hunt is sometimes exciting, too. The books are basically half off their new retail price, so its better than outright buying new books if you dont mind that your purchase might show a little love from a previous owner. Everything they have is in good condition, and you are often able to find complete series. I highly recommend giving this store a try!

Theres hardly any space in this magnificent shop that is not filled with books...seems almost like sensory overload at first, but it is more organized than your first glance may tell you...its the sheer volume of every type/genre/format that is impressive. If you love reading and books, you will be happy here. Helpful staff, too..they tracked down a couple of obscure titles and made my day!+5, will return again and again.
