Gift & Specialty Shop · Hidden Gem · Shopping
The Doylestown Bookshop is a locally owned and operated bookstore dedicated to preserving the heritage and traditions of independent bookstore ideals. Since opening our doors in 1998 in downtown Doylestown we have been able to offer our customers an alternative to the ordinary. We carry an extensive inventory of new and nearly new books from classic literature to current bestsellers. Our staff is knowledgeable and friendly and able to help you choose the perfect book for you or your family.

In addition to books we carry a wide variety of other items including toys, games and puzzles, unique journals and notepads, greeting cards, gift bags/wrap, magazines and an eclectic mix of gift items like our classic book-themed t-shirts. We offer freshly brewed coffee and specialty coffee drinks, tea, soft-drinks and snacks to enjoy in our small cafe.

Each month we host a series of great events with both talented regional authors and writers with a national profile. We also offer a weekly story-time (Thursdays at 10:30 am) and monthly book clubs.

Hope to see you here!

  • I went to this store to support local bookshops and glad I did! I purchased a great book on the history of the Delaware River. It is a large store with unique gifts as well! Check it out!  more »
  • I like supporting independent bookshops, so I had this on my list when visiting the Doylestown area. There was a nice selection in various subjects, as well as little knickknacks such as candles...  more »
  • Great independent bookshop. Nice selection, good chairs and reading nooks for browsing and reading. Magazine section could use some improvements, as it lacks both financial and current events. Good bargain, used books at the end of the store. Friendly and helpful staff...
  • There was a great variety of books sold here and they were well-organized. If you are looking for some cute gifts for people I would recommend checking out this bookstore.
