Stopped by The Bookstore with my in laws and two young kids. We didn't partake of the wine bar, but we did purchase four children's books. Great store with a laid back atmosphere.

The Bookstore is a nice little bookstore with an interesting and eclectic selection of books. The owner, Matt, is charming and knowledgable, and the staff are helpful and friendly. As a bookstore owner myself, I give The Bookstore high marks!

We visit ever time we are in Lenox just to see what new books they have found. We have great conversations with the staff and always find something to read. Topics range from fiction to local culture to science and nature.
