    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.

    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 great used book store with tons of variety. Plenty of parking and easy to find. Owner is friendly and gets to know your taste. It's also nice that you can bring books in for store credit.

    The owners were very welcoming and helpful. Had a lot of fun browsing all the different selections and ended up getting 4 books (including 2 hardcovers) for around $20. A lovely little place to spend some time on a Saturday.

    So thrilled to (re)find this place! They still offer the warmth and IMMENSE selection that earned them a place in my heart when they were in the Back Bay, and the same owner is happy to help me find books about all sorts of obscure topics. Plus I... read more
