" I am addicted to reading! Murphy's Used Books and Media is THE best place to feed my addiction. I have been all over the Miami Valley looking for deals, but Murphy's is the best, hands down. Great prices and awesome staff! I won't shop at any other bookstore."

"We love Murphy's Used Books! Every trip is an adventure, as you never know exactly what you’ll find each visit. The sections are easy to shop for both adults and kids which is extremely helpful to this family of 6. I’ve even been able to introduce my kiddos to book series I loved as a kid because they are now harder to find in bigger retailers. Because of Murphy’s we’ve been able to add onto our current home library in a much more affordable manner, which makes this bookworm mama very happy."

"As an avid reader I’m always looking for a good book bargain. On my last visit I pulled up my GoodReads list and was able to find many great books that I had been hunting for, all at great price. Nicely organized, clean and with a community feel. I have, and will continue to recommend to friends"

"I recently browsed the books on CD at Murphy's Used Books. It was my extreme luck that if was buy 2, get 1 free day. I found a cartful of books on CD - all for $ 2, 3 or 5. Original books on CD easily run $50-80. For the price of one new book on CD, I can got 30! Thanks for increasing my driving pleasure, Murphy's Used Books!"

"From the first time I walked into Murphy's I knew that I was done with other book/media resellers. I was a devoted (REDACTED BECAUSE GREG DOESN'T WANT TO GET SUED) customer, but Murphy's has them beat! The prices at Murphy's are so much better and they have a huge selection. When I resell my books at Murphy's I can get store credit and they give you such a better deal. I love how convenient the store is and how I can browse and browse for hours. The store also has some awesome events to benefit and involve the community. I am now a devoted Murphy's customer."

"I've been to a ton of book stores over the years but Murphy's book store doesn't feel like a giant book store. It is a cozy place to go for your book needs and the community events make it feel like the mom and pop shops of the past."

" I have been able to find inexpensive books for my classroom at school. I took my daughter with me to get a few books for school and she came out with a PILE of books for herself. I spent a LOT less money at Murphy's than I would have anywhere else!"
