This local bookstore is a favorite spot for many book lovers in the community. Not only can you enjoy an incredible selection of books, but you also get the cozy, friendly atmosphere that you won’t have the chance to enjoy at corporate-owned bookstores. To explain more about this local gem, dental implant provider, Dr. Chris Chaffin gives his readers an in-depth look at 2nd Look Books.
Whether you’re a fan of classic literature or modern best-sellers, you’ll be sure to find your next favorite book at 2nd Look Books. This local bookstore is located at 2829 E. 29th Avenue, in the Lincoln Heights Shopping Center.
As the name implies, 2nd Look Books carries an amazing selection of used books. This brings new life to old, forgotten books that would otherwise be wasting away in the attic. You can even trade your old books in for in-store credit. They take books in the order that they are received, which means you may need to come in at a later time to pick up your credit or books not accepted. 2nd Look Books also limits you to now more than 20 books for in-store credit per day. You’ll receive about 20% of the current book price and the book will be accepted or not accepted based off of the current inventory and condition of the trade-in book. They don’t accept specific items like textbooks, magazines, encyclopedias, book club editions or any book that is in damaged condition.
While you can truly find some hidden treasures in their collection of used books, you’ll also be able to find the latest, most buzz-worthy reads out right now. 2nd Look Books always keeps their shelves stocked with fresh fiction. You can find books ranging in genres from poetry to self-help. With such a vast collection of books, you would figure it can be difficult to track down a specific book. This is definitely not the case for 2nd Look Books! This store is organized perfectly, which makes it easy to readers to browse around or pinpoint the exact book they’re looking for. If you can’t find a specific book, simply ask a friendly staff member and they will be more than happy to help you track down what you’re looking for.
