Anyone know of any in Suffolk or even Nassau. I know of Book Bin in Oceanside but it is very far away from me. Somebody said there is one in Patchogue but I never saw it. There is one in Huntington too that is really big. Thanks

There is a really good one out here in Port Jeff Village that is directly across from the public library. It's very nice, but I forget the name of it, sorry. There is also a Best Bargain Books out here, which is cheap as well, great selection.

I am pretty sure that one closed awhile ago, unless a new one opened in its place. Book Revue in Huntington does not really have used books anymore. We had a small one in Babylon Village that did not last even one year. I don't think that there is that much profit in used books & so many people sell them on the internet.

I think it must be a new one then, Nancy. I was just there with my son the other day. Wonder if it is even in the same spot? Weird.

Yes, it was right across from the library just as you had said. The back was the parking lot behind The Elk's Hotel and I think that there was a stairway from there. I forgot the name of the bookstore, though.

Speaking of libraries--they are great places to find used books! You can try and find out when they are having book sales (some always have a cart handy). I have gotten many cheap books from sales at various libraries.

*I miss NY libraries very, very much!!!

Thanks everyone. I knew the Good Times book store closed in Port Jeff but I did not know another opened there. I agree most used bookstores are in trouble tghese days due to the intenet but sometimes it is nice to get lost among the stacks and discover something unexpected..........

I am going to try the store in Patchogue. Thanks again.

Not to advertise or anything (ahem) , but our library in Babylon Village has great booksales . They're in June and November. Lots of other libraries do the same thing. You can get great books for a quarter .
