Connecticut Book Stores

The only thing better than day-tripping in Connecticut? Day-tripping to a small, local bookstore!  We polled our members and friends to find their most favorite small, independent bookstores in the state, and the top five are:

Located at 53 West Main Street in Mystic, CT, they host tons of local events including author luncheons, book signings, and even their own book club.

Find them on Facebook!

How fun is this?: "We have an ever changing collection of over 500,000 books spread out between our four locations, all of which can be found within one mile of each other bordering the ocean in beautiful seaside Niantic. Whether you want to come to browse our stacks of books, spend some quality time with our cats, or just relax with a picnic in our beautiful gardens, Book Barn Niantic is the destination for you."  Located along Main Street.

Penny's Bookshelf

The ultimate swap shack: "Penny's Bookshelf is a used bookstore that has been in business for more than 20 years. Bring in your unwanted books and get store credit that pays for half the price of the used books in the store."  Owner Penny knows what she has in stock and if she doesn't have it, she'll let you know when she does.

A Washington, CT staple The Hickory Stick carries the latest books, and similarly to Bank Square Books, also holds author events, signings, and has a book club.

Located in Madison, "R.J. Julia opened nearly 25 years ago as an independent bookstore whose mission was, and is, to be a place where words matter, where writer meets reader, where the ambiance and selection and merchandising of books creates an atmosphere that is welcoming and presents the opportunity for discovery. Ultimately we are fiercely committed to putting the right book in the right hand."
