A quaint little used book store stocked with very old to very new books. Literature, popular fiction, science fiction/fantasy and mystery/crime. Old movie posters adorn the walls. A quiet cozy place to spend some time.

I think these are all used books, but they have a pretty extensive selection. There are plenty of books about Maine, as well as all kinds of fiction and non-fiction.

Great find in Hulls Cove. FYI the store has summer hours from 10-5 but it's definitely worth a visit.

Just needed a book to fill time during quieter moments during the week, and this place did the job. It's not a huge selection, and the vast majority of the books are older, but it's a nice spot and the owner is willing to help.

Don’t let their name mislead you. Besides a wide collection of mystery novels for a store of its size, it has many books from other genres as well--both new and used. And I would love to go through their rare books collection as well if...More

Probably the best used book shop on Mt. Desert Island. The owner was friendly and, for such a small shop, his selection was quite extensive. Found a few gems for the bookshelf at home. If you're a book-lover, be sure to stop by on your...More

This book shop carries a wide selection of books and the owners have been in the book business for years so if you are looking to find a rare or out of print book they are the right people to ask. It is a little...More
