Truly a paradise, they have all kinds of books. This place is quite narrow but it is not too crowded so you won't have to be crowded. Books will always be neatly arranged by staff. more »
I love having a bookstore like Chaucer's in town. I love to browse the aisles and see the books that have been selected by the long term staff who love literature and books and non fiction and all the things we can learn about the world we live in.

Chaucer's is an independently owned local bookstore that provides so much support for local authors. It's an absolutely wonderful bookstore, period. I was thrilled to see my book on display! Warning: you may find that once you go in you won't be able to leave without an armful of amazing books, including mine. The bookstore is that good!
