I was in Manassas, Virginia this weekend, and spent two hours or so in McKay Used Books. I didn’t know that places like McKays still existed, but was glad to spend the time:

McKay Used Books is unlike any other bookstore you’ve been to. We have hundreds of thousands of different items on our shelves on any given day for your browsing pleasure. Since 1983, we have bought, sold, and traded with customers through the Northern Virginia area.

Looking for books? We have fiction, non-fiction, children’s books, graphic novels, and comics.  Are you a movie buff looking to fill out your collection, trying to find something to watch tonight, or maybe a cheap date night flick? Check out our DVDs and BluRays in every genre. Long commute? Try our books on cd! Is music your thing? We’ve literally got thousands of cds in all different categories and now Vinyl and cassettes too! Did you say that you are a gamer? Well that’s good, because we carry RPG materials, every type of video game and video game accessory, current and retro. In addition to all that, we now carry board games, action figures, beanie babies, and even Nerf guns. There’s something here for everyone!

How do we get all this stuff you ask? From customers like you of course.

I picked up about 70 books and while there met a fascinating man who wanted to talk with me about aliens.
