I've been shopping here for 7 years or so at this point. Now and Then has a great selection of books, well organized and very reasonably priced. They also accept trade-ins for most books, allowing you to turn in old or unused books for store credit. Very friendly owner and located in a nice area.

A gym of a bookstore in the borough of Emmaus, Pennsylvania. Located on the first floor of a large single-family house, The owner maintains a well-curated collection of fiction and nonfiction in with a nice selection of fiction and folio-size art books. The owner is also a passionate believer in and supporter of local artists and authors. He generally has local artists' work up on the walls and has curated a show or two in the past couple of years. Now and Then is worth a visit and deserving of your business.
