Come to READS and find that special thing that you were looking for. We have a selection of coffee and teaware in addition to unique items from local artisans. Funk Your Junk swag - children's toy from Melissa and Doug and that other neat something!

At Reads Book Shop our bookcases and bargain tables are groaning with titles from every genre: the eclectic, the time-honored, and the hottest. If you can’t find the one you came in for, our sleuthing staff will do all they can to hunt it down and order it for you. (We’re obsessed with reading, too!) If we can’t find it we’ll try to point you to a different source. And if that does not do the trick we’ll recommend another equally enthralling read.

Relax and enjoy a variety of espresso based drinks, organic loose tea, Itallian soda or a selection of organic bold smooth or decaf filtered coffee from Equator, our local roaster. Enjoy a selection of basked items including scones, cakes, delicious squares. We also have samosas and deli salads for the savory pallet.
