We both buy both from the Bakersfield public and locations around California, therefore having a wider range of tastes and topics than are usually found coming from one area. Therefore (our disclaimer) books, movies and music displayed in our stores are not necessarily the owner's or management's personal taste or recommendation but a reflection of what our latest big purchase was!)  That being said, we try very hard to put out the type of books that will be of interest to the local community. We are excited to be able to recycle books throughout the community and have a positive impact on Bakersfield, children, schools, literacy, the environment and, oh yes...the pocketbooks of BIG READERS!
