Bookmans is not your ordinary used book store. They are committed to recycling not only used books, but also used CDs, video games, musical instruments, DVDs, and more. Pop into one of their three locations in town for hours of entertainment looking through their extensive inventory.
For more fun, bring in your old belongings and see if you can make some money! Bookmans offers cash and trade credit for your used items. With trade credit, Bookmans is not only an entertaining thing to do in Tucson, but it is also free!
Bookmans has a constantly changing inventory and is a wonderful weekend activity for the family. The potential for a cash reward for their old games and books is a great incentive to get the kids to clean out their rooms!
