On our visit to Maine we stopped at North Light Books and Blue Hill around the corner. The North Light was clearly a town favorite. Lots of people popped in, made purchases and knew each other. As a tourist, it felt friendly to be there....More

The basement is a great place to hang in the cool and read. While I'm a used-book fan, the partner isn't. Great assortment of new books. Comfy chairs. Whoever the interior decorator was, they should include multiple picts in the CV from this place.

I have been going to this bookstore for years and have never experienced what one reviewer has written about 4 times! I believe that this reviewer has a personal problem with the owner.

I go often to this bookstore and the service and the friendliness of the owner is fantastic. Some one is obviously trying to sabotage North Light books and the owner who could not be nicer or more helpful. I really feel that Trip Advisor should...More

I wish this place would go out of business. The owner is so rude and crazy. I love blue hill but it makes me cringe each time I pass by it. Blue Hill books is so nice and friendly. Why anyone would go in this...More

I had the same experience as other reviewers, twice now, in Northlight Books. Why sell children's books, yet chase children away and chastise their parents - before the kids have done anything at all? The sign on the door between the store and the bakery...More
