I don't live in the area but visit a couple times a year and always shop here. Friendly employees and lots of books to choose from. Prices are good and inventory changes. Recommend and will be back again.

This shop has a large selection of used books on a variety of topics including cooking, children’s, science fiction, history, philosophy, and religion. It is clean and well organized. We spent over and hour browsing and could have spent more. It was easy to find - about a mile away from downtown Winchester.

We found the other positive reviews to be quite accurate - the store is clean, organized, well stocked with great variety. The books reflect the owner's appreciation and love for books, the books are in wonderful condition, with many hard cover dust jackets covered in protective film. And the icing on the cake is the prices are spot on reasonable. What a find, we will return regularly! My children are boy 8 and girl 14.

It's a drive away from Old Town Winchester, but worth the trip nonetheless. The store is organized, staff is friendly and willing to assist. The books were priced a little higher than the typical used book store, but they were also in much better shape than at other used book stores. Check it out.

Super helpful and knowledgable staff. Nice selection and well organized. Off the beaten path in a strip mall but well worth looking for

I found all the books that I was looking for in this well organized good as new bookstore - a very fun shop to browse - even the little nooks and crannies are furnished in turn of the century shelving and artifacts - making it an adventure to not only look for books but to look at the kewl decor. I am so glad I found this little gem!

Glad to see Pat made into TripAdvisor. We found this place many years ago when we stopped at the Dairy Queen in front of his store. Back then his store had just expanded from one bay to two bays and now he has expanded into three bays! It is not like your typical used bookstore: somewhat jumbled, books rather too used and the place having a slightly musty odor. Not this place! So many great books in excellent used condition. It is well organized and they know where everything is if you can't find it. He does buy books but only if they are in as good condition as the ones he sells. We stop in to visit every time we are in the area and we always leave with two or three more books.

This is the cleanest, best organized, well-stocked store of gently used books I have ever visited. It is staffed by friendly, knowledgeable book lovers and the collection of books is amazing. The pricing is as you would expect in a used book store and the condition of the stock is excellent and well curated.

Blue Plate Books is operated by a friendly and competent staff and houses a very large assortment of books, including many sets. The store is very well organized and it is easy to browse by category, or to just wander and discover for yourself
