Satiate your desire for books at the Nantucket Bookworks. It is an easily accessible gifts and toys shop that stocks a variety of books for children and adults. There are journals, memoirs, biographies, novels, fiction, non-fiction, cookbooks, textbooks, children’s literature, et cetera.
If you are visiting Nantucket and are still new to its culture and traditions, it is advisable to grab books that will give you an insight into its past and current affairs. Worthy reads include A Summer Affair by Elin Hilderbrand, In the Heart of the Sea by Nathaniel Philbrick, Nantucket Nights by Elin Hilderbrand, The Guest Cottage by Nancy Thayer, and Moby Dick by Herman Melville.
Sometimes, you may need more time to sit down and read a book. Luckily, audiobooks still allow you to enjoy a good book while doing other tasks such as cleaning or driving. Depending on your preferences, Nantucket Bookworks has several audiobooks to choose from.
The store’s design and overall theme are delightful to spend time in. The books are thoughtfully displayed; thus, no books are ‘unseen.’ The children’s section is especially creatively designed to generate more attention and interest in books among children. The store’s helpful staff is always on standby if you need help finding a particular book or advice on what to buy.
Other items in the shop include candy, children’s toys, art supplies, and gifts such as greeting cards, jewelry, bags, and pouches.
