Nice little bookstore in Buxton that has a variety of the latest releases in both paperback and hardcover plus a room of half off used books. I wish I had stopped here sooner in all the years we have been visiting.

Small winding rows of books. Calm and friendly it was just right. They have a local section which is what we were searching for.

I love books and bookstores. However, this bookstore was just too cramped. You could barely walk around as there is hardly any room to pass someone in the aisle. Also, the selection is very limited. They do have a selection of local authors at the...More
