If you're local to NJ, where are your favorite used bookstores?

My favorite is Jack's Music Shoppe in Red Bank, not because they have a lot of books, but because the ones I find there tend to be pretty good.

I don't remember the name of it (20+ years since I've lived in NJ), but I think there's a great one in Cranberry (or Cranbury -- wow, it really HAS been a while!)

The Cranbury Bookworm is at 79 N. Main St., and it is great.

I will definitely visit Cranbury, thanks!

The Barnes and Nobles on 17 in Mahwah has a large used book section in the back worth checking out.

We just got back from the Cranbury Bookworm! Here's my haul for the day:

Dante's Inferno, Purgatorio, and Paradisio (3 volume set)

Asimov's Foundation Trilogy (book club hardcover)

Oliver Wendell Holmes' The Autocrat of the Breakfast Table, a collection of essays he wrote for the Atlantic Monthly (hardcover in slipcase)

Highet's The Anatomy of Satire (Princeton University Press, from a class of the same name)

First English translation of Casanova's autobiography (2 volumes)

A 1927 novel called Witch wood

Bill Bryson's A Walk in the Woods

The 1942 classic Man's Most Dangerous Myth: The Fallacy of Race (reprint)

Nancy Mitford's Noblesse Oblige: An enquiry into the Identifiable Characteristics of the English Aristocracy (I hope it's funny)

Bernard Shaw's My Dear Dorothea

Alexander Pushkin Epigrams & Satirical verse, translated


Aleksander Solzhenitsyn's Invisible Allies plus his Nobel prize lecture (in both English and Russian). Alas, no sign of Gulag anywhere in the store :-(

Fascism A Reader's Guide

We'll probably visit there once a month to see what's new. Thank you for suggesting it!

Envious.... :-)

I was envious of the guy who worked there! ;-)

^ He probably lives in strictest poverty because he probably spends his entire paycheck in the store!

That ain't poverty, LOL . . . :-)
