    This local retailer has become an institution in New Jersey. We certainly cannot count the number of prominent authors that have appeared at the location. Invariably, the line extends around the block...  more »

    During a signing event for "The Great One" my wife ,who is temporarily handicapped was sought out and given sitting with others at the head of the line which was unexpected. It gave us an opportunity to observe the operation during a busy event from a great vantage point. It was impressive. It ran so smooth and at the same time so very welcoming to a diverse set of folks that came from substantial distances to attend. It was a real pleasure and has just earned a "must stop by" on my itinerary when visiting friend and relatives in the area. Fabulous job and the prices are very competitive with B&N and Engulf & Devour. Thanks, Book Ends

    I've been to this store a few times now, and I've always been amazed at the level of celebrity authors they've gotten - President Clinton, Ace Frehley, Billy Idol to name a few... Thats enough of a reason to give them 5 stars, but they have also been really nice to local authors and their customers... I hope this great bookstore sticks around a long long while...

    I'm giving it 2 stars because they have and can get any book, But I went to one of the signings and the people who work there just want to rush everyone out. I know like any other person it gets late and you want to rest but if you can't handle it don't book it.

    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.
