This is a cute little bookshop on the main street in downtown Nantucket. It's small, but they have more books stuffed in there than I've ever seen in a bookstore. You'll find a great book as a souvenir of your trip!

This bookstore is stacked with books and gift ideas for all ages. The Christmas decorated store window caught my eye and I had to venture inside. Books everywhere the eye could see. Great staff and a great selection of books.
