Just a reminder that this happened. We know it's somewhat of an inconvenience, but it's safer for everyone. Thank you for your cooperation!

Due to the cold and the roads, the store will open at 11 this morning. If anything changes, I'll let you know as soon as possible. The quickest way to get updates is to sign up for our very occasional newsletter, because I can send that out quicker than I can post on all of our social media sites!

For unknown reasons, FB has suspended our account. Again. We weren't fond of the site anyway, so it just makes it easier to stay away from it for good. Our linktree has a list of our active social media (click on the link below)! We'll see you there!

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

This bookstore was really well organized with a good selection. Dorothy was very knowledgeable about what she had in stock and where the books were located. There was a really cool free book area where you got a free book for every dollar amount you spent at the store. This was a nice touch!

Very good selections but you have to get past their focus on romance novels. Unless you're into that kind of reading! If you are, you'll like it here.

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.
