bookmam's is a great place, they like to skatter their books around, but still it's a great learning experience!! i love to shop around the video games, comic books, magazines, and old toys, and they've also got thier movies, cd's, and of course the books. they give a bunch of store credit to you and i'm always walking out with a hand full of free stuff.

I first visited Bookmans when I lived in Tucson - loved coming in to find used books that were really inexpensive. You need to do some digging to find what you are looking for - but that is part of the fun.

everyone here is really nice. they try their hardest to help customers and they are very family oriented and they have so many different kinds of stuff for the family to do together on the weekends. they dont have a database but they will look up items online to see where they would be and go look for you, thier inventory changes everyday and its alot of fun to go check out.

I love Bookmans not just for books and music, but also for finding some hard to get items too. I collect Breyer model horses, and I found some pretty rare ones here, at a very reasonable price. I bought most of the ones they had. I will continue to shop here many more times in the years to come.

Bookmans has some very cool events for the whole family. Sometimes our moms club playgroup meets there for a kids event. Afterwards, we'll let the kids read in the children's area while we look around for ourselves! One thing it could use would be a little coffee shop.

I love Bookmans. I first got to know who they were visiting Tucson. I was thrilled to know they were coming into Phoenix. They're not that organized, but that's the fun of it. That only means you never know what you'll find. I'd like to see more vintage magazines, but you can't control that.

Bookmans has a huge selection that is fun to browse on a leisurely Sunday afternoon. The down side is that they are not very organized. I have sent them requests for specific books via email twice and both times it took several days to get a response. Help on the phone is not much better.

I usually go to the East valley version of this store, but when up in the Phoenix area, I have gone here a few times and found it very enjoyable. Similar to the Mesa one, but it has an area for used "Stuff", and slightly different "feel" but still a place any book and media lover will love. Good for gifts as well.

I browse for hours here. They sell new and used so you can find out of print titles and funky editions of books. They offer a fair price when they buy materials from you too.

I like this bookstore because I like to find bargains when shopping for books. I like that they trade cds and albums and books and other unwanted items and those that you do find to buy are something I had been looking for for a long time.

You have to buy the books but they have such a wide selection. There prices are very reasonable and it's a nice, comftorable atmosphere. I like it better than the public library.

Books, Magazines, Comics, Games, Software, CD's, RECORDS (Remember them? Made out of vinyl?) Yeah...they got that! You can find some great deals here, but be aware that they are not always the LOWEST price around. But, if you have things to trade, that can help out a lot! Just bring your items in and they will make you an offer for either cash or trade credit. It's really kind of fun!
