I've been going to The Book Barn for years and it is a great place to find a very good selection of reasonably priced books. The staff are all knowledgeable and friendly. The fact that there are multiple stores/buildings that stock different genres makes for a nice little tour of this shoreline community. One of my favorite things to do on a Book Barn trip is to find a great book, and then go to Rocky Neck and find a nice peaceful place to read the first chapter or two. Also, as a teacher, The Book Barn has been instrumental in helping me stock my classroom library. Their educator discount makes their already reasonable prices even better, which is great when you need to buy tons of books for the students to read.
We absolutely love The Book Barn! The selection in the main barn and all of the outbuildings is amazing. The whimsy is unforgettable. If you're within 50 or 100 miles, and you love books, do yourself a favor and stop.
