  • A local icon, The Book Barn, has so many return customers that it has 4 ( at the time of this writing) locations throughout the town of Niantic. Stop by for a book or two - you can purchase cd's too -...  more »
  • This week I browsed through small nooks, snaked around six-foot-tall bookshelves, sat next to sleeping cats and generally lost myself amongst the hundreds of thousands of books. Just a magical place.....  more »
  • What a cute book store. There are several throughout the town with the same owners. We couldn't believe all the books and choices. Entering the town there is a nice big store on the left. A few buildi...  more »

  • This is a book lover's heaven right on the main road with multiple locations up the street on Main St. In town with genres galore. Prices are great, get there early for parking. Lots to do besides book hunting...there's buildings, outdoor carts, book niches and paths leading to more books, games, goats, gardens and even Rapunzel's tower...fun place
  • Because we are book junkies!!! And we looove cats. The cats were very blase, towards people, though. But, they probably see THOUSANDS, a day!! If you've never been, and you love to read, plan on being here, ALL DAY!!! (And making LARGE exchanges!!) Wonderful place!! Be sure to sign the guest book, and be sure to visit all the buildings, and all four locations!! (All near each other.)
  • This place is SO cool!!! It has a bunch of buildings, all with themes and music and thousands of used books for sale. There is a little animal area with goats and the kitties were hiding somewhere. The perennial flower gardens surrounding the entire pkace are amazing with fish ponds, fountains, all kinds of garden statues including gargoyles and fairies. And there's also 2 play areas fir little ones with swings, climbing house, little tykes cars and tots etc. And a basketball hoop. No charges for parking or admission and plenty if staff to answer questions. Cool place if you like books!
  • I have been coming here since 2008. I love the quirky atmosphere and the abundance of wonderful books. The staff is fun and knowledgeable. All together a great time.
  • As someone who loves books, often runs out of things to read, and is trying to create a collection of several of my favorite series, I found this place AWESOME. Anybody from a history buff to YA fiction fangirl to younger kids can get the books they want, almost always in very good condition, for much less that you would have to spend to get them new. I recommend these stores to any book lover.
