[BHE 386] Book Hunting In The US of A (Part 2)

Half Price Books in Dublin, California

BHE

Myra here.

I have found a new favourite bookstore in the US! It was actually my husband who found the place as he was searching online for out-of-the-way bookshops for us to visit. It was a bit of a drive to get to Dublin from Antioch, but so worth it.

Half Price Books

Address: 7898 Dublin Blvd, Dublin, CA 94568, USA

This is classic before-and-after photo: before book shopping and after book shopping. I like the interior of the place as well.

There are new bestselling titles as well, which sorely tempted me – particularly the titles below.

True to its name, it does offer prices that are competitive as compared to the usual retail big book stores.

The place is huge, and I could easily spend an entire day here. But we had to be mindful of the traffic heading back to Antioch, so I had to be prudent with my time.

My teenage daughter was particularly happy with the graphic novel section. So, on to my book finds!
