Comment: Re: SHK 13.0126 Minneapolis Second Hand Bookstores
I believe the neighborhood where you'll have the most fun is near the
University and is called, I think, "Dinkytown." The main drag features
at least two excellent used book stores, along with an Espresso Royale
where you can start thumbing through your new stash.
Although I forget the names for the moment, there is one (2 doors down
from ER) that features a wide selection of books on every subject, and a
wonderful theatre alcove with books stacked 10 feet high -- and that's
just the floor, never mind the shelves. Across the street is another
store (Cummins? Not sure of the name) that is more orderly, but
features a more contemporary selection that leans more heavily towards
theory/crit and Routledge's back catalog.
The Midwest is a goldmine for bibliophiles, I should know. . .
