  • The only thing bad about this place is when they get all the famous people for book signings, you can't get near the place or have to wait a long time. Otherwise it is a gem. 
  • Awesome visits from the stars, book signatures, real deal, you must come early for a sign copy from any star, rock & roll, Sports, Novelists, etc.... 
  • This place has lots of hype and I was not impressed. They do have many in store signings and meet & greats which is nice but overall I would not go out of my way to go here to go book shopping 
  • Love this book store. The owners are super nice and they always have book signings with great authors.
  • Great local book store. They not only get some big name authors and celebrities in but they also support the local authors. The stock a wide selection of books and whatever you don't see on the shelves can be ordered.
  • I enjoy the small bookstore atmosphere and shopping for books with my daughters. The celebrity Signings are always fun. I especially like when they have Q &A sessions. My only gripe is sometimes it feels a bit rushed. And the downstairs area where we wait for autographs can get really warm--need better ventilation down there.
  • In poor taste to have a book signing with Theresa Guidice, especially since you must purchase a book to attend the event. The famous NJ/Government tax scofflaw hawking her book after committing a crime and Bookends is right there to promote this felon. I really hope the IRS sends a representative to the event, as she's been known to charge cash for an autograph and then stuff the money into a silk bag. Shame on Bookends, there's got to be a more honest and deserving author out there, you just don't seem to care anymore.
  • This establishment is open after 600pm only one day a week. Is this a bookstore or a bank? The information on their website is often inaccurate. They don't reply to emails in a timely manner. They treat you like cattle while you are waiting to get a signature from a B list celebrity on a book they overcharged you for.
