  •  My favorite bookstore is Apple Valley Books ... (7+ / 0-)

    ... in Winthrop, Maine.

    From their web site:

    Founded in 1994, Apple Valley Books is a book-lover's bookstore.
    I'll vouch for that!
    ... Our vision from the beginning was to have a little place with a small but varied selection, carefully chosen. We have done that, and grown with the times, now able to order just about anything from our network of distributors and publisher contacts. We've earned a reputation for being able to find just about anything, but also keep current, and try to have a good selection of what is hot in the book world right now.
    They also have a great selection of books by local authors whom they promote enthusiastically.

    They have a used book section I've been terrified to inspect as I'm sure I'll walk out with my arms full and I haven't finished my project of getting all of my books out of boxes and into either a bookcase or a library sale.  

    Rita, if you're reading this, I promise: when the boxes are empty and there is room in the bookcases (something I am trying to ensure), I will treat myself to a stroll downstairs.  Promise!
