There are a number of Half-Price Books stores in central Ohio. The stores are a great place to find deals on books and other media.

Half-Price Books With all of the rain and dreary weather, it's been a good time to stay indoors and read. If you're an avid reader who prefers books as opposed to eBooks, then this store is a great place to visit. Even if you're not an avid reader, it's a great place for How-to books, travel, art and coffee-table books. The books are very reasonably priced and quite a few are brand new. The store also sells past issues of various magazines, stationery, CDs, movies, DVDs and some small toy kit type items. I visited the store in Westerville at 561 S. State St. and they will be holding a "Halfy Hour" sale tomorrow, April 30. Also, The Steak Escape in the same shopping center will also be having specials and events April 30 to mark its 10th anniversary. ***TIP: If you like to shop at the store, you might want to get a $25 gift card because you'll get a bonus $5 card with it through May 8.
