    Perfect used bookstore to linger in. Quirky, eclectic, and the best of what bookstores can be. I love that this place full of culture and art is so close to me! 😊

    A great book store the reminded me of the store when it was on Newbury St. Now being run by a new generation (the previous generation is still there). I will be returning for another visit.

    We went to the book and yard sale today and loved the shop!!! Wonderful selection of books in impeccable condition. I bought 6 books outside and 4 books inside and could've easily bought more! Can't wait to go back. Lovely, quaint, and great selection.

    This is such a special place. Amazing selection of used books, magazines, and prints. It is very clear that the owners have thoughtfully curated their collection to inspire, engage, and remind people of the importance of reading a good book.

    What a find! The kind of cozy bookstore I remember from my Harvard Square days. Carrying a cornucopia of rare treasures. And, just around the corner in Lee!

    This is what a used bookstore should be. Not gigantic, but well stocked and full of surprises. The staff is friendly and helpful, and very much worth chatting with. I live an hour away, and it's always worth the trip.

    The Avenue Victor Hugo Book Shop is a wonderful place to spend an hour or an afternoon. The store is at once comforting as well as intriguing, filled with the wonderful sight and smell of books covering every nook and cranny of their new location in a post and beam... read more

    It is nice quaint shop run by nice people who will help you find any kind of book you want. It is located in Lee, NH in an old barn. Took a look next time you are in the area, you won't be disappointed.

    A local treasure--you just don't find bookstores like this one anymore--a bookstore founded upon a love for books. For book lovers and the curious, a one of a kind store that still gives you the opportunity to browse and get lost in the shelves. Sit and read a book while... read more
