Staff is just incredibly helpful - I called for a gift certificate for my wife mat Christmas - they had it ready and met me at the back door so I didn't have to find... More

Diane's Books is located on a tiny street off Greenwich Avenue. She started in one small shop, then added on over the years. It's the kind of place where you come into a mess of books, in the best sense of the word. She and her staff are incredibly knowledgable about books and authors. Yes, they have the latest thrillers,... More

Diane's Books is one of the last remaining independent book stores, and what makes it wonderful is that it has an extensive collection of books both for children of all ages and adults. The workers are very knowledgeable about the books they sell and are eager to help. They will wrap your books beautifully so that you feel proud to... More

My family have a thing about visiting bookstores every place we visit, and this was one of the best bookstores we've ever been to. Mary seemed to know everything about every book, and was extremely helpful assisting my 7yr old with some summer reads, as well as recommending books for my son who reads if he has to! It's a...

A good selection but, extremely arrogant, rude service. Unfriendly, gruff and abrupt. I will never go there again!

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 is a throwback to the days when we shopped in our neighborhoods for basic staples such as food, books, hardware, stationery, clothing, and developed relationships with the owners of these shops. It is now a rarity to find such proprietorships where you can walk in the door and engage in a conversation about the last item purchased, where your... More

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!
