If you enjoy books and bookstores you will LOVE the New England Mobile Book Fair (less than an hour from Providence)!
While we were visiting an old college friend of mine and her family up in Newton recently, she told us about her favorite bookstore we had to visit. She was right, this place is unbelievable. Unfortunately, we got there 30 minutes before they closed for the day. We barely had time to get a taste of the place, but are already planning our next visit. This warehouse of a bookstore has stacks and stacks of books for kids and adults arranged by publisher. At first visit, it may be a little hard to get used to this system, but there are plenty of staff members to help you. Paperbacks and hardcovers are 20% off everyday. The day we were there, kids books were 30% off the regular marked price. After cruising the aisles to get an overview of the place we had a quick peek at the remaindered room – more stacks of books at deep discounted prices. Beware of going with a bookophile — they may never leave!
