1. Half Price Books

"I, Frenchaire was offered a Local Author spot one Sunday last month. It was an awesome opportunity. Grateful for the managers Kiki and Allen who organized the event for me. Melissa was so kind in calling Allen to the tables. Everyone was friendly, kind and delightful. I am grateful to have shared my books with the store. Everyone was so warm and welcoming. Grateful for the experience.On other visits to the store, when I need help finding books, I love how the employees walk me to the shelves to find the books not just tell me where to find them."

"I loved this bookstore! A small location so not a large selection of books but the books there are wide ranging and quality choices. It has a great atmosphere though with a bar serving literary themed drinks as well as coffee or tea and several places to sit and enjoy."

4. Barnes & Noble

"Visited this Barnes & Noble for the first time while being a resident of Dallas,TX. We were instantly offered assistance by a very nice young lady in the Junior section. We ended up hanging out just allowing my little Glam baby to pretend to read several books at the table to us as we allowed this little almost two year old to mimic what ways we tend to read to her at home. She enjoyed herself and so did we.Thanks Barnes & Nobles for not having to file bankruptcy like a number of major Christian Book stores and others Book stores did during Covid and afterwards."

5. All You Can Books

"This site is rubbish. I wish I'd read the reviews. What they offer is rubbish, they don't reply except to quote corporate speak (rubbish). I lost interest soon after signing up and didn't once use the site. If this is an example of American good business then it stinks."

8. Lucky Dog Books

"I didn't even know these guys existed. We parked in front of the shop while visiting another store and noticed the boxes of books on the sidewalk. Once you walk in, there are paths all throughout the building and books stacked everywhere! It's like your own hidden maze of adventure. I felt like a kid again exploring this shop."

"Went there with my dear father and loved it. The staff is nice. Nice selection of books. A lot of authors I had no seen in other book stores, which is a plus.However, they only have English language books. That's my only criticism. Bring books in other languages, at least Spanish or Portuguese."

10. Lucky Dog Books - Oak Cliff

"This is easily my new favorite store in Dallas. I went to a HPB lately and while there was nothing egregious with the experience, I found the place to be rather sterile. Lucky Dog is the exact opposite. There’s just a unique personality to the place. In an age where anything can be ordered off the internet, the appeal of bookstores for me is in the experience of browsing books. And the experience I had here was especially exciting. Every time I thought I’d perused all sections that spoke to me, I’d stumble across another hidden nook. I could easily spend a whole weekend and a whole paycheck at this place."

11. Interabang Books

"Hello, dream bookstore. Visited Interabang Books as I was passing through Dallas. Not only do I walk into a pristinely organized, accessible store but I was greeted with kind, knowledgeable staff. Not all bookshops are created equally - this one stands above the rest! My mother asked for a memoir recommendation and an employee, Stewart/Stuart was immediately able to pick up and provide a thoughtful explanation of his most recent favorite. I was looking at a sci-fi and the staff made sure I was aware that it was a stand-alone to a series, and offered me the original books. You can tell that they, too, are readers and care about helping you find what you want! They also offer a 15% discount for teachers so I got a couple of signed chapter books for my classroom. Lovely experience. I wish they were closer to home! If you love a warm, sincere bookstore I highly recommend a visit."

17. Dallas College Store - El Centro Campus

"Got in and out in just a few minutes. Had to buy scrubs and lab coat. Only thing bad is, there is no changing room. You have to guess whether or not the size fits you. I just pulled the scrub pants over my jeans to see if they fit."
