The Crow Bookshop -- Burlington, Vermont
I love the Crow. It's not Church Street's premier used bookstore (see my "North Country Books" review), but it's got a great selection of hard-cover and paperback books. It's a smaller space than "North Country," but its coziness and creaky floorboards make up for its lack of volume and lend a "funkiness" that should be called used bookstore chic. I'm always impressed with their table of new arrivals -- usually recent bestsellers in fiction and non-fiction that everyone was reading a few months back. They also carry a good selection of kid's books, not the classics per se, but great books for kids that won't set you back while you're trying to save for their college fund. The Crow is just books, no cd's, dvd's, smoothie's, or coffee drinks -- when browsing or buying "The Crow" bookshop is a delight.
