The advantage to a shop like this, aside from the fact that you aren't exacerbating the Amazon problem, is that the owners are very knowledgeable about nearly every genre. This means they can offer a curated set of books alongside personalized recommendations, far better than anything you're going to get online. You can see and touch the books, skim through them, and really take your time in a quiet space to make your decision. It makes the whole experience more humane and brings back a sense of respect for the work that goes into writing, editing, designing, and publishing. Books are important, they can shape who we are and change our lives forever, they shouldn't be delivered in a cardboard box next to your subscribe-and-save toilet paper. Shop local, buy your books from real people who deserve your time, attention, and money.
Today was our first time in this little shop and love it so much. From the moment you walk in this store you are hit with the comforting smell of books. They had a great selection and the people were friendly. We will definitely be back. We were even allowed to set down and read a little of our books before purchasing. And the classical music playing in the back ground gave this little local shop the perfect ambience.
This is a lovely bookstore in downtown Concord that opened during the pandemic just before Christmas 2020. The owner is delightful and personable. They sell new and used books and I like how they are mixes together. The childrens collection could be larger, but the childrens space is nice. Adjacent to a coffee shop can support local with one stone. Wonderful local shop.
A fantastic addition to Concord and right next to a coffee shop no less! The inside is aesthetically pleasing and smells incredible. The owner is extremely nice. We have been waiting for a great book store to open up in downtown and Goldberry does not disappoint.
Love this bookstore! Love that it's downtown. Owners are fantastic, great selection and will order books for you if they don't have it! I'm so happy I can support a small business rather than buying books on amazon!
