I love browsing in Diane's. They always have a great selection of all genres. There is so much more inside than you can imagine from looking at the outside. The staff is very helpful.

Diane's Books is the best. You want advice about the best read, the best children's books, just ask the knowledgeable people who work there! A favorite destination of everyone who lives in Greenwich. Great gift ideas, too. Oh, did I mention that they wrap? I love Diane's Books!

Altogether a good experience - and a treat to have an independent... More

My family and I have been going to Diane's (yes, this really is independently owned by a real person named Diane) for more than twenty years. She and her wonderful staff have shaped, nurtured, and supplied our extremely diverse reading tastes and needs (three generations from pre-teen to near ninety with interests ranging from history to poetry to mysteries to...
