“The last great bookstore?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2012

Hopefully not, but in the days of the 'Big Box' retailers of books, this is a gem.
Village Books is directly across the street from Fairhaven Village Inn, which I have reviewed elsewhere . The complete opposite of a 'big box' bookstore, Village Books attracts staff who love books and love sharing them with customers.

“A great bookstore”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2011

You can always find a book here to interest you. Note that this a private book store and not a chain. The prices will be a tad higher but the book selection is top drawer.
