Great selection of cheap books..
Out of the five Half Price Books locations in the Twin Cities, the St. Paul store has the biggest selection of clearance books availible, most either only $1 or $2. Be prepared to spend time in the clearance area, though; most of the books there are unorganized, though they are sorted by fiction/non-fiction and placed neatly onto the shelving.
The only problem this store has is the small parking lot, which has a capacity of maybe 15 cars at any given time. During the weekends and on some evenings, parking is scarce and you will more than likely be required to walk to the store from another lot. The larger lot adjacent to the store's lot, however, is for private parking only and cars there will be towed.
This store is highly recommended for anyone seeking books at a discount price.
A Biblophile's Dream. While wandering the streets of my new city of St. Paul, I came across this gem of a shop for all book lovers. They have books crossing all boundaries--from the rare to the common, the sci-fi epics to the religious memoirs, the old and used to the new overstocks. And generally speaking, the books are in great shape, even the used ones. You can't beat the price--I found the entire Anne of Green Gables set cost me only $7!!
