I love this book store! It's quite like a Tardis, bigger on the inside! There are many, many rooms filled with many wonderful books to choose from. Dorothy runs the counter & a sweeter lady is not to be found! Hardcover Saturdays are also not to be missed. Absolutely one of the best used bookstores in Albuquerque!

After searching multiple bookstores in town for a specific book, I finally decided to call around instead of burning more gasoline and time. Menaul Book Exchange was the first place I called, and the nice woman on the phone immediately knew the book I was looking for, and found it in under a minute while I was on the line. What luck! After the excited rush over there, I was welcomed by a quaint and cozy exchange, and the book awaited me at the counter. Unfortunately I forgot to ask the woman her name, but the service was excellent and she very clearly has a vast knowledge of books!

I stopped in today and found a great selection of books by my favorite authors! The free book with purchase section was amazing! The cashier was very sweet and I will definitely be back. I have my eyes on many books I had to leave behind today! 😊

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.
