This bookstore in the heart of Fairhaven is a great find. It has an overwhelming number of books, all well organized with an interesting staircase to the lower level that is packed with books. It also has a wonderful view of Bellingham Bay and is a great place to browse for almost anything you want to buy.

Be sure to allow plenty of time and then add another hour because it's hard to tear yourself away! The selection is tremendous.

I loved this book store. They have a huge variety of books, with a great children's section. It is a great place to just roam around and have a coffee.

Located in the Fairhaven district of Bellingham, Eclipse Book Store is a well stocked used book store, on two levels. Finding things can be tricky, but the salesperson usually can (at least) provide advice on where to look. Unfortunately, the shelves are labelled with small tags that are easy to miss, and some categories are "off" (e.g. under "Japan" I... More
