Just love the variety of books and the children's section with interesting puzzles, games, and so much more! Have always gone to the parent company in Vermont and so happy when this location opened closer to home. Could spend several hours there just perusing!

Great book store! Huge selection, with a second floor devoted just to children's books. Nice layout, friendly personnel. When I was there, they had a book signing by Sean Spicer a.k.a. Mellisa McCarthy's inspiration.

When this location opened, I was not sure what I'd find, knowing the Manchester Vt location so well. How would they handle adding a daughter store in a quaint but busy city when the mother store is located in the quintessential picturesque post-card setting of...More
