1. Nine Lives
4907 NW Loop 410, Suite 102
Tucked inside an unassuming plaza off Loop 410 lies enough used literature to last several lifetimes, though from the outside you'd never know it. Step inside Nine Lives Books, and you enter a beacon of enlightenment, complete with a life-size Yoda acting as gatekeeper to the maze of books, magazines, vinyl, CDs, DVDs and VHS tapes. The shop offers a little piece of everything, including horror and fantasy (a whole room's worth), vintage pulp novels, esoteric items, $1 or less bins and a sweet children's nook. The shop also houses a well-loved armchair and a vending machine with cold drinks and snacks for those planning to stick around.
