in Book Stores

As you walk into Jericho Bookstore the smell of old books is overwhelming. The store carries so many books old and new. The store employee was quick to help me find what I was looking for, even though it was not very hard to find your way around. I was pleasantly surprised that the books were so well kept and organized.

All the books in the store are half off the sticker price, and they even had an area where all books were twenty five cents. Although I do not think I would buy the books offered for twenty five cents, they say that the selection changes often. They sell text books and great old literature. This was a great store for people that love to read books especially if you are looking for an older book that may not be carried by Barnes and Noble.

There was not very much of a child’s book selection. It was somewhat disappointing, but there was a much bigger selection online. A lot of their kid’s books that were in the store are used, but they are in good condition and some had beautiful illustrations. Really this was the only part of the store that I had higher expectations for.

There really is a beauty to buying old used books, and Jericho sells all their books at great prices. If you are interested in selling your own used books to the store you can take them up to the store or see their online website. The employees are real book lovers and can answer all your questions, and they are willing to help you find that perfect book.

This article really needs some editing, I doubt that book lovers will take a book store reviewer seriously that does not know the difference between there and their, and constantly changes verb tenses. This article does a disservice to this bookstore not because of its content, but due to its lack of understandable content.

Thank you for your spelling corrections. You must have been a spelling Bee genius.
