I know Barnes & Noble is a chain, but how nice is it to have a book store right here in Hoboken? It's small, but chances are it has just what you are looking for. I recently joined a book club and try to check out this Barnes & Noble before going anywhere else. The sales people at this location are very friendly, and what I like best is that they will help you find your selection within minutes. Usually I am in a rush, but want to pick up something quickly. They find my book on the computer and lead me right to the spot it is in the store. And if I have a little more time, I ask if they have any suggestions. Everyone is so friendly and helpful, and isn't that what you want in a neighborhood store? So just reminding you that the store is there, at the end of Washington Street....check it out before you head to the mall or some larger location on a nearby highway.
