We've made a bold Tumblr!!! Yes, Tumblr. You'd be surprised at the celebrities, authors, and businesses that are on the site...heck, even NASA is there!

Books are still one of the favorite gifts for the holidays!! You could even start your own Jolabokaflod tradition and give books on Christmas Eve and spend the night reading them with a nice warm mug of something hot!

Along with SO many books, we also have a large selection of LeaninTree cards in stock at all times!

...excuse the shakiness; she-who-does-the-social-media has Essential Tremor. :)

The store will be closed Thursday, but we'll be open Friday and Saturday so you can have a quiet, calm place to shop after the Black Friday madness!

We're asked numerous times on a daily basis if we purchase books, and the answer is, and always has been, no.

This place is awesome! Went just after the holidays and the woman apologized for the fantasy section being diminished. I still found many books that i would have purchased. Did get 1 of the fantasy, BUT just past that was an extremely well organized mystery section and I easily found 2 books i had been on the lookout for. Will always come here when im in the area

I have been in many used book stores between Tennessee and Albuquerque and this is BY FAR the best organized and friendliest. I wish I had access to one like this in Tennessee. For anyone who loves to read and can't afford to spend a lot of money on books, this is the way to go. And an e-reader will never replace a real book! 10 stars for this store!

About us

We are a hidden gem of a shop, with a warren of rooms filled to the brim with a gamut of genres, including a Y/A and children's section. We specialize in all types of mysteries and romance novels, and we also carry hard-to-find older westerns and military fiction, as well as Harlequin and Silhouette romance series. 

If you don't find that particular book you are searching for, Dorothy will be happy to order it for you if it's available. The prices are unbeatable and the service exceptional.

We always have Leanin' Tree greeting cards in stock, and sometimes additional book related gifts. The shop is also dog friendly store: stop in and say Hi to Mighty Max!

Menaul Book Exchange is located at 9409 Menaul Blvd NE, in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The store began its journey on Eubank, just north of Constitution, and soon moved to a converted house on Menaul in the mid-1970's. We are one of the two oldest bookstores in Albuquerque.

Called "Eubank Books" when it opened, the name became the Menaul Book Exchange when it moved. 

It has been independently owned and operated by women since it opened, and the current owner, Dorothy, has led the charge since 1998.
