High Prices, Poor Service by Josh J. on Dec 23, 2008

During one visit early this year I asked about seven or eight different authors, all relatively popular, to which the clerk replied, Yeah, we don't really have any books that people actually read. And if you do manage to...

You make it what it is, have some fun. on Jun 3, 2008

Cliff's selection in American History is wide and deep and the philosophy section commands respect. I strongly recommend you join the book club, 20% off for the next year for only $10.00. TIP: people hide books they wish...

Dirty store, dirty books, and dirty looks by Sankoni _. on Nov 19, 2007

But judging from the way the guy looked at me, you'd have thought I asked him for his wife's number. He simply pointed in the general direction of the back of the store and said They're back there somewhere. Oh well...thanks...

High prices, rude clerk by J. S. on Oct 21, 2007

I would have left and gone elsewhere if I had known the area well enough. Then, I couldn't believe what happened next - the clerk actually criticized my selected books. He said they were 'junk', and he wished all such books...

Filthy store and high prices by Rachel D. on Oct 2, 2006

I never can find any books that I am looking for and if I do, the price is about the same as as buying it at Borders (75-85% of original price). I highly recommend that you avoid this store. PROS: zilch CONS: dirty, unfriendly...

Some Good Books, But Lousy Staff by Marilyn P. on Nov 30, 2005

Thanks to CalTech being nearby, the store has a solid science section that you usually dont find in a used bookstore. However, if youre looking for a helpful, comfortable bookstore, this isnt it. The staff vacillates from...

High prices, poor selection by Curtis S. on Sep 12, 2005

Even for popular and well known authors such as Heminway or Steinbeck the selection is worse than mediocre. In addition, the prices for paperback tend to run only about $1 cheaper than new versions. PROS: CONS: Poor selection,...

High prices, mediocre selection by Jeff C. on Sep 2, 2005

Expect to pay about 75% of the new price for a beaten-up copy. To be fair, it's probably hard to run a used book store in an expensive city with internet book stores everywhere, but you won't find Cliff's to be your best...

Cliffs Used Books used to be a good store long ago by Janine B. on Jul 27, 2005

A few minutes later my son found the section he was looking for clearly marked Ethnic Studies. While I was in there I asked the owner if I could see a magazine that was in a locked case - the guy (Cliff Gourdikian) was intoxicated...

Good For Collectors! by Robin G. on Jul 1, 2005

This comic book store would be a great haven for those out there who collect comic books. They have all the latest, some vintage, all different types of comics. They are good about helping customers fill specific needs,...
