The local booksellers Hamish & Henry in the lovely little Catskills town of Livingston Manor is a welcome addition to this town's offerings and a true oasis in a morass of barnes and nobles and borders. The owners are friendly with annotated notes under their favorite books. The layout is very user friendly with comfortable chairs to peruse covers and ample space to display their selection. They have chosen their fields carefully, offering specialties like various kinds of world history and a small but choice area for spiritual books. Their fiction offerings are quite complete, and they will order anything you'd like. They present local and national authors for readings regularly. And, the extra special treat is free, homemade sweets!
