Bookseller Review: Bookends

80 Maple St.
Florence, MA

Bookends offers selections from the expected to the unexpected in virtually every category. Its strengths are in history, biography, natural history and particularly in literature-fiction, poetry and literary criticism. Bookends also has a sizeable collection of foreign language books. 

What we like: Any book store with a cat is good by us. Plus, the selection is solid (two stories), the owner is extremely nice, and the prices are reasonable.

What we don't like: We visited once while we were living in Northampton and there were cookies. On this visit, no cookies? 

Would we go again? Yes. It's too good of a book store, and we like the town of Florence too much, to not go back any time we can.
