Clove Lake Book Store is wonderful! For years, my parents have taken me there and we can always find the books we are looking for. If they don't have them in stock, they'll order the books for us and get them to us quickly. Despite the more competitive prices at Barnes & Noble, I tend to get my pre-ordered books from Clove Lake because they often are able to get them to me before the actual release date. From the outside, the store might seem a bit run down, but the clutter on the inside just adds to the homey feel of the store.

I moved off Staten Island about 10 years ago, but visited recently and passed by and was surprised to find the store still in business. The ourside is very shoddy, but what I recall most of all is the way thatmy then 10 year old daughter was treated. She was put under surveillance by the shop's older owner as if she were going to shoplift and I was in the store with her. That was the last time I ever went to that store!!

As a former Staten Islander -- I left the Island in '98 -- I often wonder if Clove Lake Book Store has bitten the proverbial dust, like so many of the other, wonderful independent bookstores in New York City. It's good to hear that they are still around, and I hope that they are thriving. Is it still the crowded, dusty, inviting nest of books that it was in the 1990s? I hope so! Kudos also to their extraordinary staff!

Small independent bookstore beats the larger chains by a mile! Great personalized service and much faster orders than the larger bookstores as well as some more eclectic and interesting books. Coffee and cake are good elsewhere - I don't need them in a bookstore. I need the personal and fast service that this wonderful neighborhood store provides.

Clove Lake is very lovely little bookstore. They have a very good selection of fiction, romance and self help books. The sales people are very friendly and will go out of their way to help you find a book. They even offered to order a book for me when I couldn't find what I wanted in stock. The shop is very neat and clean.

I love this place. The people are so sweet and courteous and want to be there. If they don't have the book you're looking for they'll order it. Overall, I have no complaints.
