Customers of this wonderful in-town bookstore worried when Borders moved to a shopping plaza outside of town. No worries. Borders has come and gone. The Gulf of Maine still brings a wonderful selection of Maine authors and poets to a loyal fan base and the tourists " from away."
If we always buy from Amazon there will only be empty holes on Main St. and in the soul of the community.
Have some fun and explore this shop.

The best bookstore in Maine and possibly New England. They have outlived the big chain bookstores and have a very loyal cliental. The owners, Beth and Gary go out of their way to satisfy their customers and can order most anything in a timely manner. Their originality, awareness and a wide variety of books has kept them in business for 35 years.

Small but to the point, you gotta love independent book stores. Gulf of Maine has been around for decades, and there is a reason for that. Leaning a little (or a lot) to the left) indie book stores stand for independence and a point of view. Find the books that you didn't know were written. Poke around and just enjoy the atmosphere. This is the place to look. Long live Gulf of Maine.
