We love Murphy's Used Books! Every trip is an adventure, as you never know exactly what you’ll find each visit. The sections are easy to shop for both adults and kids which is extremely helpful to this family of 6. I’ve even been able to introduce my kiddos to book series I loved as a kid because they are now harder to find in bigger retailers. Because of Murphy’s we’ve been able to add onto our current home library in a much more affordable manner, which makes this bookworm mama very happy.

 I am addicted to reading! Murphy's Used Books and Media is THE best place to feed my addiction. I have been all over the Miami Valley looking for deals, but Murphy's is the best, hands down. Great prices and awesome staff! I won't shop at any other bookstore.
