I recently went to my local Half Price Books and sold some of my old books and bought a couple of recent novels for half price. I was new to the store and wasn’t informed on the eco-friendliness of the store. For instance, Half Price Books was named in the EPA’s Top 20 Green Power Retailers. I did a little research and I thought I would share.
Half Price Books began in 1972 and now has many locations in 16 states across the Unites States. For the nearest store near you, go here. If you like to own books, not just borrow from a library, this is the place. They carry best sellers, used books as well as classics. And that is just the books. They also have CDs, LPs, text books, DVDs and more. Most of these sell for half price or less. If there is a location near you, I urge you to visit a store and see for yourself. I will definitely be returning soon.
