Come on in and browse - we have chairs, music, critters, water, and a hundred thousand books. We take cash, check, Visa, MasterCard, Discover. American Express, or debit cards, and Paypal. We offer fast special orders on in-print titles, and will conduct extensive searches for out-of-print books. We've been around for over 20 years, we've been featured on A&E's Storage Wars, and we are happy to answer any questions you have on buying or selling books.
So, first let's get one thing straight: We're not called "ILIAD BOOKSHOP" because we're a Greek bookshop (the truth is our first location was next to Odyssey Video, and hence a literary joke).
