Stepping into this quaint bookstore/coffee bar was like stepping back in time. There was a large selection of books, as well as eccentric gift ideas, journals, and even toys and games. It was a wonderful way to spend an hour or so, and the staff was wonderful as well

A nice little bookstore with plenty of books. We drove all the way here because Jeff Kinney the author of The Wimpy Kid books own this store. My Granddaughters love his books and we’re so happy to see all his books in one place. Don’t worry adults, there are plenty of books for you. Plus a nice cafe to sit, drink coffee and enjoy your new book.

The Pulitzer Prize award-winning investigative journalist and biographer Mike Stanton was at the An Unlikely Story book store in Plainville to discuss and answer questions on his book, the biography UNBEATEN, about Rocky Marciano, the greatest heavyweight champion of all time. A book signing and an opportunity to further talk with Mike followed an excellent local cable T.V. reporter hosted Q & A session who was also a former Brockton, MA resident, also Rocky's home town. Mike also shared that his book was recently optioned for a movie which, based on the 1950's - 1960's era when professional boxing was at its peak and the involvemnet of mob controlled venues and cross-cultural biases pervading American Society through sports back then, should make an exceptional sports movie of the times.

This building was an ancient general store that has been rehabbed. It is a delightful spot with books, gift items, tables for writing your novels, and good food. It’s worth a look see even if you are not on a particular shopping mission. Prices are reasonable. There are holiday tables on the second floor that are specialty items handmade by local people in season.
