he only bookstore left in downtown Greenwich and it is a winner.

It's a challenge to buy from a bookstore rather than online, but Diane and her staff are extremely helpful in selecting the right books to read ourselves or give as gifts to others

This is a small store but it is LARGE in service, selection, guidance, suggestions, etc. The staff at the store know their customers, their books and their business. I can never walk out of this store with just one book. Diane's books has been around for 25 years and I look forward to being with them for the next 25... More

We had heard about this place so it was the first stop on our walk along Greenwich Avenue. It was a great store full of books. There were rooms of books. I know that if my children were still small, h it would have captured their attention for hours. The staff was friendly and helpful - they obviously love books... More

I've lived in Greenwich 30+ years. I knew about this Bookstore but never went there. I discovered it recently and found it to be really wonderful place. It has several small rooms FULL of books of all kinds, and multiple copies of many popular books. I'm going to buy All 6 of my grand children books from this store for... More

Reminds you of times gone by. A great bookstore with terrific folks to help recommend books for infants, travel, leisure reading. Hope trips place never closes. Drop by and buy real books you can hold in your hands and turn the pages!

On the Avenue and looking for a great book browsing experience? Then Diane's is for you! Remember the aroma of piles upon piles of new books? Then your olfactory glands will in overdrive. The selection is impeccable, young, old, or in between ... There's something for everyone. Can't find it? Then Diane will order for you.

I just wondered in here and while looking around for something to read. I was surprised at the variety since the place is small. I'm into spy and espionage stuff right now. Didn't find the one I was looking for, but got a nice recommendation. Great place to find something to read. Enjoy!

Although you pay full price here, the service is amazing. I wanted a book as a gift that was just published. No problem. They had it, gift wrapped it and I was on my way. Wonderful resource.

Whether you like fiction, non-fiction, need children's books, doesn't matter. This store has it, and the people there to help are just so good, and so nice. Never had anything but good, fun, enriching experiences there.

You will love it the moment you walk in. This is what a true bookstore is. The staff is very knowledgeable and can help with what ever you are looking for. Great selection! And if they don't have what you are looking for they will order it and have it in a few days. My son loves going there, he... More
