A quaint bookstore housed in a storybook cottage--a reader's favorite escape. – What to Expect
Nestled into an old house, Book People is easily missed. Once you do find it, you'll gape at the selection of new and used books--it's massive, engrossing and entirely fascinating. Just keep in mind that this is a place for hunters and gatherers: With books stacked on shelves and piled on the floor, you might have to browse a bit.
What to Look For
While Book People stocks most bestsellers, its strength lies more in its unusual or hard-to-find books. Look for philosophy, religion and children's books here, too.
With the shop owner usually on hand, you can get advice on how to find books you're looking for, as well as suggestions on what to read.
Watch out for small stacks of books sitting around the floor--it's easy to knock a few over if you're not watching where you're walking.
