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.                                                                                           entrance

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.
