Events Buzz Monday: Autumn Is Upon Us!

Happy first day of Fall here in New England, home of the little bookstore that’s bigger on the inside.  The leaves are starting to crunch on the ground, and although today is definitely a warm one, the nights are getting cooler and the air crisper and drier… perfect weather for reading on your porch and planning your leaf-peeping jaunts.

A reminder of our Autumn hours:

MONDAYS & TUESDAYS – 10AM-9PM * WEDNESDAYS & THURSDAYS – 10AM-8PM

 FRIDAYS & SATURDAYS 10AM-9PM * SUNDAYS 10AM-6PM

And, as always, we reserve the right to stay open past 9pm on event nights.

Autumn means apples, pumpkins, ghosts, and mysterious doings.  You’ll find plenty of good reading on topics both spooky and homey here at your friendly neighborhood bookstore.
