Having forgot my Kindle this trip, I decided to try and find a book to read- preferably one I was planning on downloading on my Kindle. My goal was simple, to find a non-fiction NYT best seller. Wow is all I can say. None of...More

This is a cute little bookshop on the main street in downtown Nantucket. It's small, but they have more books stuffed in there than I've ever seen in a bookstore. You'll find a great book as a souvenir of your trip!

This bookstore is stacked with books and gift ideas for all ages. The Christmas decorated store window caught my eye and I had to venture inside. Books everywhere the eye could see. Great staff and a great selection of books.

Mitchell's is the perfect spot to pick up that summer reading. It's also known for having great book signings by the authors. These are well advertised so you can get your chance to meet the author in person.

Great selection and friendly staff. This year I found they sponsor Where's Waldo contest. I think 23 local businesses hide a die cut of Waldo. You get the passport at Mitchell's. The stores will give a hint where he might be hiding. When he's found,...More

What a find! I live in Boston, where several favorite bookstores have disappeared over the years. It was a real treat to find this well-stocked, cozy two-story haven conveniently located in Nantucket's historic district. Mitchell's Book Corner offers the customer service and invitation to linger...More

Located right on Main street. They had several authors on site ready to sign your purchased books! I bought several for holiday gifts, plus they had children's books as well. Cute shop.
