White Birch Books
Ranked #7 of 25 Shopping in North Conway

It was a cute little place, but the emphasis on little. We were looking for books on trees and their selection was pretty minimal (they did have mushroom and bird books)

Books a Million had a much better selection, even though the store wasn't that much bigger.

Amazon and chain stores have their place. Fortunately so do small stores like White Birch Books. This place carries an interesting assortment of new and used books, both national best sellers and books written and sometimes self published by local authors. I make it a point to stop in at least once, usually more than once, when ever I'm in the area.

I would like to see independent stores get more help from authors. Perhaps someone should suggest that Stephen King and Ace Atkins release there next block busters to the independents first and then the chain and ebook vendors.

If you like book stores, then come to White Birch. From locally focused reads to a wide array of texts, this book store is comfortable and welcoming. The front section that provides an eclectic selection of books also provides small 'reviews' by the owners and employees for each of the books to entice the customer to pick it up and read.

quite simply it is well worth traveling to North Conway simply to visit White Birch Books ....

we were on our way to Franconia, ans it was not our intention to stop in town,
but spotted the store when we stopped for petrol just next door.
and what a charming little respite it was ... a delight to the soul and the senses !

don't drive past as we nearly did - but give yourselves a treat.
it is on the left of main street just before the station.

This quaint shop is a great place to browse and find some new reads! The area it's in is full of touristy stores, but this place is a good get away from the trinkets.
