I was wondering if anyone knows of other fun/interesting/wonderful bookstores around new england?
There's a great old barn full of books in Henniker, New Hampshire. Two floors (the books go up about 14 ft. on the upper floor). To find the bathroom among the bookshelves and alleys there, one has to follow the pink string . . .
Old #6 Book Depot or something like that. It's listed here in LT (I should remember as I'm the one that entered the venue:-) There are a couple others in the area if you are making the drive. One small used bookshop on the way up in Weare, another just beyond and to the East of the Book Depot, and Books-By-the-Lake is in Bradford across Route 9 and a few miles north. There is also a nice restaurant with a river view in Henniker center. In the fall it's awfully pretty up there.
Smaller, but with equal used book store character, is Whitlock's Book Barn (Bethany, CT).
The cool thing about it is in was on the second floor in an old bar. Has a solid bar running most of the length of the store. Played miniatures like Warhammer on the bar.
and am carting home piles of books at "2nd to the last day sale price" of 50 cents a copy. Sorry, used book stores!
1. There's the Old #6 Book Depot, a LARGE barn FULL of shelved, categorized used books. Two floors and I'm fairly certain the shelves downstairs are about 8 ft high, and the shelves upstairs area about 12 or 14 (ample ladders abound).
2. There is also the Henniker Book Farm (http://www.hennikerbookfarm.com/), but I've not been there (I get distracted by the terrific quilt shop in town).
3. On your way to Henniker, if you go through Weare, there is Boomer's Books, ( http://www.boomersbooks.net/ ), specializing in military history and lots
4. North of Henniker on Route 114 in Bradford, NH is Books by the Lake ( http://www.conknet.com/~bksbylake/ ). Their books are in a small barn/garage next to the house.
Henniker is a small town, home of New England College. It has a lovely scenic covered bridge over the river. It also has Pat's Peak ski area, if you like to mix sports & books. There's a fabulous quilt shop and a fiber studio in town, and some great eating places. I highly recommend "daniel's" restaurant in the center of town on the river. There's also a terrific little cafe near the stone bridge (on the right just after the bridge going north on Route 114) that makes some excellent sandwiches.
Can anyone update the Pioneer Valley (Montague/Northampton/Amherst) book store destination trip? Are there other areas in New England worth driving to for their bookstores?
