We are proud to be Rockland’s local independent bookshop.

We carry high quality new and used books, as well as a careful selection of unusual cards, magazines and merchandise.

One of five finalists for Publishers Weekly's 2019 Bookstore of the Year. You've seen us in the New York Times (here and here), Downeast Magazine (here and here); New York Magazine; Maine Magazine, the Boston Globe; Yankee Magazine, People (kinda) and on bookmarks scattered throughout Midcoast Maine.


To foster an active and vocal enthusiasm for books and print culture in a screen-centric world;
offer out-of-the-ordinary merchandise and gifts;
cultivate community and advocate for social justice;
and to do all of this with an independent spirit.


From The Lost Art of Reading Nature's Signs (268 copies sold!) to White Fragility (41 copies sold!), here are our 50 bestselling books of the last five years. We're a little shop, so this list says a whole lot about our customers' loves and interests.

Yes, we can preorder 99% of forthcoming books for you! We can hold books for pick-up in the store, or we can ship them directly to you. Here are some things we're especially excited about--if there's something you're looking for you don't see here, try the search bar above or send us a note.
