“It Made my List of Favorite Bookstores”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2012

I like to blog about new and used bookstores in New England, and this shop made my list of favorites. Just the bookshelves alone, each hand-crafted by the owner make the visit worthwhile. The selection is not extensive, but if it's not there, they will happily order it for you.

A converted house with nice staff and good selection. Right smack in the middle of town.

“EXCELLENT INDEPENDENT BOOK STORE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2011

Nick and Mariah have owned and run this bookstore for over 25 years. The selection (which includes two floors) is very good, and there are comfortable chairs to enhance your browsing. There are not only best-sellers, but also a wide range from the current market--and there is an extensive array of classics. Additionally, there are children's books and very handsome greeting cards. Also, there are periodicals, including titles available nowhere else within 50 miles. Special orders are accepted graciously and fulfilled rapidly. This store is attractive, welcoming, and filled with good reads. Don't wait for a rainy day. Go now.
