Independent bookstores offer much more than a good book. They are communities where book lovers listen to readings or bond with others over their passion for the written word. These are the best independent bookstores in Maine.

Annie’s Book Stop

Annie’s Book Stop prides itself on being “The Friendliest Book Store on the Coast of Maine.” The huge selection includes a variety of children’s books for all ages, as well as an extensive collection of used books.

Gulf of Maine Books

Gulf of Maine Books in Brunswick first opened its doors in 1979. Bookseller, poet, and progressive Gary Lawless is the owner of the popular bookshop. He is always looking to empower people with poems and songs, and you can bet that he has a book in mind that will be just what you’re looking for.
