“Books Like They Should Be”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

A wonderful, old-fahioned but well organized used book store. You can spend as much time in the old store in an old house as you have available.

“Don't pass this up”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2012

This was our favorite stop in Vermont. It was right in the middle of town, and has rows and rows of books. There is every subject you can think of, and there are some antique books as well.

“fantastic little book nook in funky Plainfield”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2007

I LOVE this place, it is fantastic for browsing and finding tons of eclectic books and ephemera. A stone's throw away from River Run and Positive Pie restaurants in funky downtown Plainfield. In the summer, there's a Farmer's Market on Sunday afternoons right across the street. There is also the unique Blinking Light Art Gallery right around the corner.

Ben also has periodic "half off" sales where everything is marked down by 50%. Get on his mailing list so you can be aware of these sales ahead of time.

If you're a bibliophile and you pass through the town of Plainfield, you must stop here at the Bookshop, it is a wonderful little slice of book heaven.
