Used bookstores are a perpetual source of happiness for me, even as I have stacks and stacks of "to-read" that I'll likely never get through. Herridge Books hits all the marks: every imaginable subject matter, well-organized, wall-to-wall stacks, multiple floors, good music being played, friendly...More

There are so few "real" book stores left nowadays, and this one is not to be missed by any book lover visiting the Cape. Hundreds of used books at reasonable prices; it's a joy just to browse and discover.

Herridge Books has every book ever written! No, but it seems to have everything you were ever interested in reading and couldn't find. And a lot of books you had no interest in reading until you discovered it on a dusty shelf in the basement...More

I went in just to browse and found treasure. The staff was wonderful and was a breath of fresh air. If you dig you will find treasures! Worth a stop for any bibliophile.
