Many copies, varying quality, of a wide range of all types of books. Allow plenty of time to peruse!

Friendly and knowledgable staff. No regrets on ay purchases. The staff cull the offerings and remove books that are past readabilty quality. Great variety for the whole family.

This bookstore is a real gem, located in "uptown" Sudbury. There are 2 levels, many people miss the basement. Great used books, huge selection and very reasonable price. The owners invented book recycling long before it became a trend.
