Dear Fellow Journalers,

I once walked into a bookstore in Virginia and never wanted to leave. I live in New England (USA) and while there are still great barns and antique shops, quaint book stores are NOT the norm. The bookstores I’m talking about have a great book selection along with comfy chairs, maybe a nook or two with windows, and maybe a cafe.`If they cater to the community they are situated in then you have a definite winner. This past summer I went on a search to find my next great read and found a great bookstore, courtesy of Yankee Magazine.  So, for those of you who are “armchair travelers” here’s the short list

R.J.Julia’s in Madison CT –This store on the Connecticut shoreline, is always attracting authors for signings and readings. There’s an on-site (independent owned) cafe that sells food along with signature coffee.

Gibson’s  Bookstore -Concord, NH – This store boasts more than 40,000 books! They also have plenty of tables and chairs and a reading schedule.

Northshore Bookstore, Manchester Center, VT – This store is in a converted inn with multiple floors including one completely devoted to children. There is also a cafe and lots of comfy chairs.

“Books you don’t need in a place you can’t find” is a slogan from a  store in Montague MA called fittingly Montague Bookmill. Plenty of books and seating.

Maybe you’ll find a hidden gem in one of these absolutely delightful mecca for book lovers.
