Every year there are fewer independent bookstores. The big box bookstores drive independents out of business, then the big box model runs into headwinds of its own. Borders is on the brink of bankruptcy. Is everyone going to Amazon or e-books? What happened to the simple pleasure of browsing down aisles of books to stumble across something completely unexpected?
The Millrace Bookstore is a very small bookstore in Farmington. It looks over the Farmington River.
Millrace feels more like a library in a musty old home than a store. It comes complete with a cat to sit on your lap. So long as you pick a chair in the sun.
