There is a place here in Madison that, if you are a reader, you need to know about. It's a dangerous place, of sorts. Specifically, a danger (possibly) to your budget, although overall it is incredibly budget-friendly. I am talking about The Book Deal, one of Madison's newest used bookstores. It is located at 319 W. Beltline Hwy #111, on Madison's south side. If you are looking for affordable used books, this is the place. Their selection is phenomenal. I never leave their empty-handed. Of course, I am severely lacking in self-control when it comes to books, among other things.
I might also mention they have a loyalty program, each book you buy goes toward getting free books.
This was my haul from this morning. Honestly, I went there for the Mark Manson book. I'm not kidding. The books, they call to me to take them home. And I listen, oh I listen to every murmur. I usually walk out with more than a few books. Some day, I will have the shelves I need to store them.
As an added bonus, you will also meet Lyra, the dog in resident. A warning, though: She will think your sole purpose is to come see her.
