Half Price Books

Nominated for: BEST Bookstore

Half Price Books 1400 Twixt Town Rd NE Cedar Rapids IA (319) 377-4982

In 1972, we opened our first store in a converted laundromat in Dallas, Texas. Co-founders Ken Gjemre and Pat Anderson stocked the store with more than 2,000 books from their personal libraries. Half Price Books was created with the idea of offering a great product at a great price. And it worked! Today, Half Price Books is America's favorite new and used bookstore chain. Our simple philosophy continues under the leadership of Sharon Anderson Wright, daughter of Pat Anderson. Today Half Price Books has stores in 14 states, with each store carrying a unique variety of new and used books, music, movies and games. The company continues to grow having opened new stores in Missouri, Ohio, Kentucky and Texas within the past year. In 2005, Half Price Books expanded its stores to the Chicago area and now has 3 stores in Chicagoland. We buy and sell anything printed or recorded except yesterday's newspaper. Preserving and recycling resources and entertainment of every form is our business. Whether it's new or used, a best seller, or an old classic, you'll find the most incredible and unique assortment of books. Best of all, almost everything is half the publisher's price or less. And since our stock changes daily, you'll find something new every time you shop. Don't forget music and movies. There's an exciting and unpredictable world of sights and sounds to be discovered in our enormous collection of CDs, cassettes, LPs, videos and DVDs most at half price or less. We buy books that you've already enjoyed. So if you have more books than shelves, bring your books to Half Price Books, where we'll give you cash for your stuff.
