THIS is my kind of used bookstore. There are little nooks throughout, it looks old, smells old...I just love browsing through this place! They also have a nice selection of LP’s which is hard to come by.

Eclectic!! Records, DVDs, CDs, Books, games, and more!! There is always something new/old or curious to see on each visit inside Denton's former opera house theater. Exploring the many levels is an adventure and always find a must have item.

This place is seriously wonderful. We live in Tulsa, and willingly make a weekend trip to Recycled Books. You could spend all day here, getting lost in every pathway, the maze of shelves, every visit finding a new section you’ve never seen. Aside from looks,...More

I picked up a great old Anthony Trollope novel I have never read and a Roach Sisters record album from the late 1970's. A great place to browse and find a music or literary treasure you were looking for- or one you never even knew...More

Books are shelved by author and type of book. They do buy books from you, however will not buy book club hardbacks even when in perfect condition. Only books with the codes and price inside the jacket.

Since 1984 this great store has been "Recycling" books, movies and music. They have a huge selection. Staff was very knowledgeable and helpful. Even if you don't want to buy something at least stop in for a visit to see the collection.

There is not a set price, the paperbacks are fairly inexpensive, the hardback books are not discounted as much. You can find some great prices, just be prepared to spend some time looking!
