Book Zoo

In an era dominated by big-box bookstores such as Barnes and Noble and Borders, not to mention online giant, Book Zoo stands out as a rare gem: a book store for book lovers. With an eclectic and unique selection of cheap used books and an extremely welcoming atmosphere, Book Zoo has in spades what the big stores try in vain to fabricate — namely, personality. This is not the kind of place where you go to find a specific book; this is where you go to browse and stumble across something truly special like The Neverending Story or the Necronomicon. Operating in the tradition of Moe's and the short-lived Books Not Com, Book Zoo is the quintessential Berkeley bookstore, filled with fanzine editors, wingnuts, and peaceniks. The confusing filing system only adds to the charm. Ask a staff member and they'll be more than happy to give you the guided tour.
