I buy all my books at Paperback Exchange! The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable, and always know the perfect books and authors to recommend. Also, if you bring in your used paperbacks, they give you 20% off the cover price in store-credit to buy other books - it's perfect! They can't always use everything I bring in, but they generally take the majority of my books. If you are visiting or live in the Harrisburg/Lemoyne areas (they have two stores) and are looking for books, I recommend you stop by.

I am normally a very friendly, easygoing person, so it's rare that I encounter the kind of rudeness I did today with the ladies at this establishment. They were rude when I called ahead (she kept talking to someone else who they were annoyed with, without the courtesy of excusing themselves or covering the receiver). And when I arrived (a 40 min drive for me), they took one look at the box and said they're too busy on Saturdays and I need to call ahead (it was a small box- I cannot lift that many books and I DID call ahead saying I had a box of books). I'm sure they get busy, but there was not one other customer in the store at the time. I had a couple of small hardcover books, and she said in a sarcastic, annoyed voice, we only take paperbacks, this is PAPERBACK exchange. So whoever wrote that they take hardcovers - not true. I asked if we could sort through the paperbacks, again they scolded me for not calling ahead because it's SO busy on Saturdays (no one else in store - they could have done it). I finally got fed up with their attitude and left. This looks like an okay place, so I hope your experience is different, and by no means go in there with more than a handful of books.

This place is awesome! I just got home from checking them out and they are great, really. The ladies were very helpful too. Extremely neat, tidy and organized. It is an exchange and I bought 5 books and got $5.00 for the 3 books I took in, neat! I will be back and can't wait to take my daughter, she'll love it too.

The new address is 5800 Jonestown Rd. Harrisburg PA 17112.
The new location is two lights beyond Kohl's then bear to the right. It's a little hard to find. But keep your eyes open. I think the shopping center is called Paxtonia.

I read tons of books about 5 paperbacks a week. Their selection is great. I love romances. They also sell a small amount of new books cheaper than regular bookstores. The staff is nice. The trade-in policy is fair. There is another a sister store on the West shore.

Paperback exvhange is a great idea!! You can trade in your old books for credit towards the purchase of new ones. The selection is great, and the clerks are very knowledgeable, and are quick to offer suggestions on authors you may like, from looking at your purchases!!

There are two paperback exchanges in the area. Both are owned by the same people I think. This place is a book lover's dream come true. You can exchange your paperbacks for other ones. You can also buy books at a deep discount. This is so much easier then going to yard sales and flea markets. They have a great selection.
