I used to go to Russell Books every Sunday when I lived in Victoria. This place has a huge selection of used and new books. The price of used books is fair and you can usually find deals on new books. You can also bring in your used books to sell and they give you pretty decent store credit for them. Considering how big the place is, I'm also surprised how quickly the staff can always find what I'm looking for. I bought way too many books here than I can read...
Great book store, lots of selection with new and used copies. We couldn't find a book we were looking for and left our information and in 2 weeks they received a used copy and called us and we picked it up. Great service, super helpful staff and they love dogs too!!
