  • review rating 5  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.

  • review rating 5  The good have been revived. After leaving Boston some years ago, AVH has finally be resurrected in the wilds of New Hampshire. Look for the red barn on the side of the road. Books of all kinds for every taste. PS. Blue the bookstore cat is now buried in a secret location, but if you like dogs....

  • review rating 5  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 classical music plays in the background. Family run, a product of a lifetime of love and work, Avenue Victor Hugo is not to be missed!

  • review rating 0  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 can trade-in old books for cash or store credit. There's never been another place like this and I'm just thrilled that they're back. Thanks, guys.

  • review rating 0  I love this place! They have quite effectively captured the charm one expects of a New England used book store - thousands of books, original wide plank wood floors throughout this big red barn, owners with decades of experience selling books and hundreds of interesting stories to tell, some antique typewriters and other artifacts, chairs to sit and relax, classic books that are surely on your kid’s summer reading list, books for toddlers, best sellers, biographies, travel name it. It’s, of course, family owned and they are nice, honest, passionate, avid readers themselves! Check it out; you won’t be disappointed.
