I had never visited Herridge books before, but I will return whenever I am in the area. The store had so many used books on a vast number of topics packed into a small shop space. I asked - offhandedly - for books by a...More

What a great little used bookstore. We make it an early stop each time we visit the Cape in order top off our pile of books for the week. The fiction section is especially well curated and there are lots of books on local themes....More

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

Not counting the beach, this is my favorite place on the Cape! Huge selection of books, and I seem to always find things I never even thought of. You can easily get lost in browsing, and the shop itself is so cozy and packed with...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.

Faced with the decline in reading throughout America, the small, independent bookstore has gradually become a relic in many towns and cities. Herridge has stayed open and continues to thrive with a small, but dedicated cadre of clients who can find just the right books...More

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
