Meet Jef

"I've been with Half Price Books for more than 21 years now and still enjoy coming to work each day. How many people can say that? It's never boring and I couldn't imagine 'selling' anything else. There's a certain camaraderie that exists between people who love books. I feel that bond with my co-workers and with our customers. Even when it goes unspoken, it's there."
