A Republic of Books is Available Now!

When a narrator is not so much unreliable as imperfect, A Republic of Books might be a first refuge for scoundrels and saints. The perfect bookshop might not be, but then again . . . When failure is an option, a nation of books would have to be a republic as much as a state of mind. A Republic of Books, the newest published novel by Vincent McCaffrey, is now available at our store and through Amazon.

New Hampshire Magazine Visits Our Shop

Rick Broussard, editor of New Hampshire Magazine, described the feeling of visiting our bookshop in Lee:

The rustic floorboards are steady underfoot, making not a squeak to distract the minds of those who search the shelves. Each nook and surface and collection of curiosities is arranged by careful hands to facilitate curiosity and a sense of place in this cosmos of books. The labels defining areas of interest are thoughtfully hand-penned, suggesting that there are human guides nearby should a browser decide to come up for air and inquire about a specific title.
