I put this place on my used bookstore rotation and visit it about once a quarter. I never fail to walk out with a nice pile of high quality books that are reasonably priced. The owner is an introverted but very kind and intelligent man who is really interesting when you can get him to talk. Definitely worth a significant drive out of your way to check this place out. Parking is not difficult.

It's a hidden treasure!!! This store has a great selection of books for very affordable/cheap prices. You will have an enjoyable time going through the shelves. Or if you are looking for something in particular, you can ask to see if the store has it. Friendly staff. I will absolutely come back.
