Just the other week ago I stopped in with my friend to just look around. Little did we know, we both bought books! Great selection of books and great prices! I bought a book for $4.00 that I was going to buy at Wal-Mart for $30.00! Knowing that my money is going to help seniors who put so much of there hard work in making this world what it is today is also a reason I shop here now. But the main reason I buy my books a "2nd Reading" is the friendly older man who works there! He was so friendly and made our shopping experience great! I went back just the other day, because that man was so nice! I read an review on here saying that the ladys were not nice, but the older man who works weekdays during the day is really nice! I will always shop at 2nd Reading Book Store because of my wonderful shopping experience! There needs to be more people like him in this world!!! AWESOME BOOK STORE- AWESOME WORKER!

I enjoy going into this store for my reading needs. I think it is wonderful to support my local senior center and get new (used) books in return! I have always been greeted with welcoming gestures and will continue to shop here for my used books.

My teen daughter and I stop by this used book-store occasionally. She loves nothing more than to pick out books from the super sale rack and pay $1.00 for four or more books! The selection is old and spotty but finding something good is like a treasure hunt.

When I recently brought 4 bags of books in excellent condition to this book store, the least I expected was acknowledgement of my donation. Instead I was sharply instructed to "leave them on the table". Not one of the four women working in the store thanked me or made me feel welcome in any way. I was not looking for praise, but a civil hello would have been nice. In the future I will be donating my books elsewhere.

Second Reading sells used books. That said, here's why you'd love this place if you like to read. 1. The money goes to help finance the West Chester Area Senior Center and its programs for senior citizens. 2. Some books sell for just pennies and you can sometimes walk out with a bagful for just a couple dollars. There's a little bit of everything here: best-sellers, how-to, self-improvement various handcrafts, children's books, reference volumes, large coffeetable books--more than can be mentioned in one short review. They take donations of books, too, but not always. Sometimes they have to sell down their stock before they can take more on, so it's best to check with them first before brining books in.
