    New Jersey is the only state honored by two resorts at Walt Disney World. The Beach Club Resort, modeled after Historic Cape May and The Boardwalk Resort, after Atlantic City. If the Jersey Shore is good enough for Walt Disney to recreate, isn't the REAL Jersey Shore even better for you and your family?

    Going thru some old threads - I love books and read a few every week so this interested me. BUT - no fiction writers? I love fiction set in NJ, even if the town is made up - and like to support our NJ authors. What about...
    Mary (and Carol) Higgins Clark
    Paula Marantz Cohen (if you are a Jane Austen fan - check her out)
    Harlan Coben
    Paul d'Ambrosio
    Janet Evanovich
    Chris Grabenstein
    Jane Kelly
    Patricia MacDonald (if you like Sandra Brown or Nancy Taylor Rosenberg, try her)
    David Rosenfelt
    Jane Rubino (if you like Janet Evanovich - try her)
    Beth Sherman
    Wendi Corsi Staub
    Mariah Stewart
    Valerie Wilson Wesley
    Dave White

    The reason those authors aren't listed, is because Rutgers University Press came to us and asked to partner and sell their NJ related books on AboutNewJersey.com. All those books are Rutgers University Press books. It would be very difficult for us to do the fulfillment if we were selling books from all different sources and we don't have the resources to stock books.

    If you were to buy just one of those books to start off your collection, which one would it be?

    Well if you don't have it - the NJ Encyclopedia is a must for every TRUE New Jerseyan. Unlike Wikepedia - the information in there is compiled by experts on the state and in their particular field.

    I just read the editorial description of that book. It sounds great!

    Thanks for the recommendation.

    You're very welcome. It is an excellent book. I should ask Marc Mappen if they will be doing a revised edition. I think he had told me they were looking at doing a new one every 10 years or so to make sure the information is accurate and to keep adding to it.
