I’ve been going to Last Exit Bookstore since they opened. We haven’t had a used bookstore in our area for quite a long time, so it’s nice to have one close by.
They opened close to KSU and catered to the college students – but they have changed and expanded. For a couple years, it seemed that every time I went in, they had a new section and new books to explore. At one point, Jason (the owner) purchased a collection of old science fiction magazines. I dug through those and found a true treasure – 2 of the Science Fiction and Fantasy magazines with the original Gunslinger stories that eventually became Stephen King’s Dark Tower series! Very exciting!
Now, they not only have a cafe where you can order great coffee and food, but they opened a whole new section that features great music – on LP! And classic books and more.
If you are in Kent, Ohio, make a stop and check out Last Exit books. Tell Jason hi. Just make sure you have time budgeted, you don’t want to rush through this one.
