The Book Trader, on 2nd just north of Market, is an Old City institution with two jam-packed floors of used books. I heard two people say “wow” when they got a look at the place. And it’s pretty much always open.
First floor is non-fiction, and space between the shelves can be very narrow.
Climbing the stairs to the 2nd floor fiction section gives a bird’s eye view.
The 2nd floor has a reading nook and a vinyl collection, for anyone with the equipment to still play records.
And more packed to overflowing shelves.
I got a selfie while picking up some books.
