"Book collectors who travel will want to keep one of these (the Used Book Lover's Guides) in the car for handy reference. I rarely hunt for new books on trips, but used bookstores are very different from each other, and treasures may be found anywhere. Prior to getting this guide, my usual tool was the phone book: but that still leaves the job of finding the actual stores, hoping they'll be open, and discovering for oneself which stores are the jewels and which the clunkers. The Siegels have done all that--well, a lot of it--for you." -- Mythprint, 2/98"Have you ever gone on a vacation and thought about visiting the local book store of the area you are exploring, but don't feel like hunting down a local Yellow Pages to locate the book stores? It can be really frustrating when you visit a really large city and have to locate sometimes more than ten or twenty bookstores. Well David S. and Susan Siegel have come up with a wonderful solution to travelling book hounds everywhere in the USA. The name of the guide is The Used Book Lover's Guide and there are six different guides that the editors have put together based on six different geographical regions of the U.S. Each guide lists all the bookstores that can be found in each town or city, of each state, depending on the relative location of the state. I have read through The Used Book Lover's to the Central States - which is where our bookstore is located - and felt that it was very accurate and very useful." -- Bookphilia Newsletter 1/99"The Book Hunter's Bible." -- American Booksellers Association(For) readers who like to browse bookshops and appreciate good information on whether a particular bookstore is worth a detour for them. -- Antiquarian Book Monthly, May, 1999Book collectors and dealers will appreciate these guides very much with detailed information about dealers in particular areas. -- Martha's KidLit Newsletter, Jan/Feb, 1999David and Susan Siegel are entrepreneurs, authors, travelers, and book lovers -- a powerful combination that has produced a series of guides that no confirmed "bookaholic" will want to be without. In 1992, the couple set for themselves a goal of becoming "the Baedeker or Frommer of the used book world," and they've succeeded admirably. -- The Mining Company, 1/99If you have been buying books using only the free guides put out by the various state and regional bookseller associations, you might be cheating yourself. You will find many dealers listed in The Used Book Lover's Guide that are not listed in the guides put out by bookseller associations. I found at least five book dealers within thirty miles of my house that I didn't know existed. The Used Book Lover's Guide also gives more detailed information about each store than other sources do: name, address, phone numbers, size of stock, specialties, hours, services offered, year established, owner's name and whether or not credit cards are accepted. More importantly, detailed instructions and maps make it easy to find each store. ...The most unusual and interesting feature of The Used Book Lover's Guide, however, is the store review. ...The reviews tell you whether or not a store lives up to what it purports to be or should be. -- BookQuote, 6/97If you're one of those rabid bibliophiles who love to explore secondhand book stores, here's just what you need when next you hit the road. -- New Choices, March, 1999Many wonderful out-of-print books can be had for not much more than the effort of looking for them...The bad news is that many of these books are, almost literally, buried treasure. The good news is that treasure hunters need no longer dig blindly. David and Susan Siegel write and publish a series of regional guidebooks that will steer you to an appropriate used bookstore, probably only a short drive away. The booksellers in the guidebooks are indexed by their specialties "Cooking" and "Wine" are excellent place to begin. -- The Resource Guide for Food Writers, 1999 The Used Book Lover's Guides are designed to assist book lovers save time and money while searching for used, out-of-print and antiquarian books. The books can be used as travel guides to help you plan your book hunting trips or as desk references when you want to contact dealers by phone, mail or on-line., The guides give you all the information you need to find the books you're searching for, including: a detailed description of the dealer's stock including specialties and the approximate size of the collection, store hours, easy to follow travel directions, city, regional and state maps, dealer services, e-mail addresses and web sites, a comprehensive Specialty Index and valuable comments about the stores (based on the authors' actual visits) that help you decide if the store is likely to have the types of books you're interested in.

    I bought the 1993 edition while I was living in Central NY and can only comment on the Central NY listings. I found the format easy to skim through and the maps/directions extremely helpful. All the information you might want is included--phone numbers, hours of operation, genres sold, etc. Occasionally the description of a store's offerings was not quite right, or the place in question no longer existed, but such changes can happen when there are several years between editions. I intend to buy the edition for NC once I get moved in.
