One of the Best Independent Bookstores

I’m deeply honored that House of Books was recently awarded the prestigious honor by Connecticut Magazine as one of the Best Independent Bookstores in the state. Here at House of Books our main goal is to provide readers with the best selection of new and noteworthy books, NYT Bestsellers as well as the New England Regional Indie Bestsellers and many books from small presses and first time authors as well as an impressive History Section.

I spend countless hours pouring over print and digital catalogs choosing every book for the store – many with individual customers in mind. I’m asked all the time how I choose the books, as customers regularly tell me that I have one of the best selections of books they’ve found in a small independent bookstore. In all honesty, there’s no rhyme or reason, no magic trick I just pick what sounds interesting allowing my curiosity to run wild. It doesn’t hurt that I’m a lifelong voracious reader so am very familiar with some of our greatest writers and continue to enjoy discovering first time authors.

So please stop in soon and browse our eclectic selection of books, journals, note cards, greeting cards and gift items. We are always getting in new Art Supplies and have some Office Supplies as well to go along with our Copy, Fax and UPS service.
