  • With very good reason. It's not just a great little indie bookstore in a world where many haven't survived the arrival of big box retail, it's a vital force in the community. They don't just sell book...  more »

  • This is the kind if bookstore environment that encourages you to take your time and hang out. There is an above average selection in their three stories and a very sizable website catalog. You can order just about any book and they will even track down rare and out-of-print books.
  • This bookstore is super fun. I could easily spend hours in here without getting bored. Find a great book and a quiet chair and relax. You can even bring a canine friend! My 5 year old was entertained by the fun toys and knickknacks in the attached papercrafts store. Something for everyone!
  • Lovely old building. I have always enjoyed coming here and it's connected to a few other stores so on a cold day you can hunker down in here for a little while. They also have a small cafe and, of course, lots of books. They will occasionally have book readings and signings as well. It's a great cornerstone in the Fairhaven community.
  • A really nice and cozy bookstore. If you are a bookworm I recommend as they have a cafe and some places to sit down. They have a great variety of books, although they can be pricey.
  • It’s great that they sell high-quality used books, especially for those of us who need to be more budget-conscious. There are both new and used versions of many of their offerings. Also nice that there are quite a few comfy chairs spaced about where one can look over potential purchases.
