Owner description: Northshire Bookstore is a family-owned, independent bookstore. We are one of the largest bookstores in New England. Northshire Bookstore was voted Best Bookstore in the country by Publishers Weekly magazine and Best of New England by Yankee magazine. Come see why so many people rave about this full-service, old world but up-to-date store. Many gifts as well as books and a whole floor devoted to Children!

This is a difficult review to write.

We both enjoyed the bookstore very much.

There are books to suit everyone taste, and plenty of them.

Had we stayed in the bookstore this review would have had fives across the board.

Unfortunately we were hungry and there is a cafe attached to the store.

We've been in some pretty classy places and being from the NYC area have had the privilage of enduring snooty resteraunt staff but the fellow we ran into here toook snooty and elevated it to an art form.

We'll most likely return for the books but we'll definetly eat elsewhere.

There isn't enough space and time to chronicle all of the wonderful things about the Northshire - it truly is the heart and soul of Manchester. The Northshire features an incredibly knowledgable staff and amazing, eclectic selection for an independent bookstore. I always take out of town guests to the Northshire and they are always amazed.

Books, books, and more books .... plus unusual trinkets and things from Vermont. A great book store with both new and used books for sale. Check out the employee recommendations and the very nice descriptions listed under each of the new books. A great find in Mancester Vt.

If we hadn't been short on time, we could have spent all day here! There were thousands of books, trinkets, gift items AND they were having a sidewalk sale to make things even better! Great selection and prices weren't too bad, either!
