The Concord Bookshop
65 Main Street
Concord, MA 01742
Concord, THE Concord. As in Minutemen and the birth of the American Revolution, dammit! They have a book store now. Other booksellers told me I should see it, so I popped in for a quick visit.
The book store is on Main St. and is very large and feels a lot like a library. Shelves made of rich wood. Serious. Not somber, but it has . . . gravitas.
The selection of books is bountiful, and there is a large selection of nonfiction. A lot of history and Biographies. It also has great sections in Art and Poetry, though. There is a large children’s section.
The store opened in 1940 and moved to its present location on Main Street in the 1960’s. They host events, supply offsite events, and work a lot with tourists in the summertime and the holidays. A fine bookstore in a fine location.
