It's a rare occasion when this well-stocked bibliographic heaven doesn't have what visitors are looking for. Their stock seems to be increasing exponentially judging by how many to-be-shelved books wait on trays in the aisles. The selection is so strong in so many categories (the film section is daunting indeed), that it requires multiple visits for even the most focused browser. And there's a Campbell store as well.

With mountains of used books stacked precariously floor to ceiling, Recycle Book Store is a place to wade through the seas of literature at a leisurely place. The secondhand bookshop's eclectic collection of new and used books and DVDs are arranged into a vast variety of genres, each specified by an individual hanging wooden sign. It's shabbily charming ambience is complete with numerous tabby cats lounging around the bookstore's densely packed stacks.
