Book Bear
The corny bear statue outside shouldn’t discourage you from browsing the impressive 90,000-volume collection here.

On the shores of Lake Champlain, this spot is as rural as things get in New England. The Book Shed has thrived in this town of fewer than a thousand residents by attracting used-book buyers to the 15,000 hand-picked volumes of owner Joseph Trenn. 733 Lake Road, Benson, VT. 802-537-2190; thebookshed.com

Henniker Book Farm
The current owners are keeping a 48-year tradition alive at the Henniker Book Farm, which is just five minutes from New England College. Its 30,000 used and rare volumes range from general to scholarly interest, with strong sections on history, biography, and science. 34 Old West Hopkinton Road, Henniker, NH. 603-428-8888; hennikerbookfarm.com

Myopic Books
This collection of 25,000 used books is clearly influenced by its proximity to many colleges, with emphasis on history, philosophy, science, architecture, and literature.
