Just a few storefronts down from a great coffee shop is a little book shop called Thimbleberry's Books.

Talk about a Diamond in the Rough. I knew it was quality when they had "Used & Unusual" on the window. Walking in, my suspicions were confirmed as I breathed in the odor of fine literature. This place had character too. Nice bookshelves & antique chairs so that you could give your new find a closer inspection. After unearthing a beautiful vintage (1944) hardcover of Dante's The Divine Comedy, the greeter found me & promptly meowed his approval. Of course any used bookstore worth it's salt has a friendly cat, but they had 2!

To complete the scene of a perfect used bookstore, as I walked up to the counter, booty in hand, an employee & another patron were having a discussion about Polish Waltzes as one was playing on the radio. The employee had even sized me up as I browsed the store; when she came across 'God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater' in my pile she said she knew I was 'A Vonnegut Guy'. Now that's knowing your customer.

If you're ever in or near Marshfield, WI, I cannot recommend this gem enough.

This store has the most unique, older books I've found in some time. They are in very good condition, yet aged. The store floor plan is very well laid out, too.

I enjoy looking for old books about antique cars and this place is always on my list to check out. They have a wonderful selection of titles and the staff will go out their way to help you locate that special book.

I just love books and could spend hour after hour in this store looking for all sorts of things. They have current titles and several older ones as well. Prices are reasonable and the atmosphere is just charming.
