There’s something nostalgic about a bookstore that has been lost in the digital age of iPads, Kindles, and people opting for movies and television over reading. But the imagination that comes with a good book is unmatched. When shopping for the holidays this year, considering giving the gift of a great read for those of every age on your list.
Step off Front Street in Greenport into the cozy Burton’s Bookstore. Find popular new releases, local titles, and great children’s options. They even giftwrap! The Book Cottage behind the Southold Library is home to previously-loved books of all genres at great prices, making it easy to fill your library. For the serious bookworm in your life, Black Cat Books on Shelter Island sells fine used books including vintage collectibles and signed first editions. Take a trip to the South Fork and visit Harbor Books and Canio’s Books, both in Sag Harbor, and BookHampton in East Hampton. Happy reading!
