Times may well be tough for old-fashioned books and bookstores, but there's still nothing like the excitement of wandering through a bookstore, stocked full of insights and wisdom and laughs, to find that perfect summer classic.
A Great Good Place for Books, in Montclair, is that kind of bookstore. The kind where the staff actually reads, and just being inside makes you feel more literate. The kind that sponsors a summer reading challenge for young readers who have to read ten hours a week to win the ultimate prize: a party at the bookstore. Use this deal to double your money towards summer reading books for children and young adults, so you'll be all set to compete in the epic Summer Reading Challenge.
Book it on over.
This is a cozy and friendly neighborhood bookstore that is right across the street from the Montclair Pharmacy. It also seems to be the literary equivalent of Cheers, where everyone knows your name (especially if you're a kid). The knowledgeable staff will help you find just what you're looking for and introduce you to several magical titles you weren't. Come in and stay awhile.
