Stopped by The Bookstore with my in laws and two young kids. We didn't partake of the wine bar, but we did purchase four children's books. Great store with a laid back atmosphere.

The Bookstore is a nice little bookstore with an interesting and eclectic selection of books. The owner, Matt, is charming and knowledgable, and the staff are helpful and friendly. As a bookstore owner myself, I give The Bookstore high marks!

We visit ever time we are in Lenox just to see what new books they have found. We have great conversations with the staff and always find something to read. Topics range from fiction to local culture to science and nature.

It was a rainy Thursday in the Berkshires. I have been trying to find the best bookstore, ranging from Northampton and Amherst west... And this is it. Maybe it doesn't have everything, but I wouldn't know; I was not looking for everything. What it does...More

The Bookstore doesn't have everything, but you can find the classics and a mix of eclectic titles curated by owner Matt. A must-stop shop for any trip to Lenox—one-of-a-kind local shop.

This is a really lovely place, a gem of a bookstore. It doesn't try to be all things to all people, but stocks what's really interesting, and it's a nice place to hang out, socialize and have a glass of wine.
