The basement is a great place to hang in the cool and read. While I'm a used-book fan, the partner isn't. Great assortment of new books. Comfy chairs. Whoever the interior decorator was, they should include multiple picts in the CV from this place.

I wish this place would go out of business. The owner is so rude and crazy. I love blue hill but it makes me cringe each time I pass by it. Blue Hill books is so nice and friendly. Why anyone would go in this...More

I had the same experience as other reviewers, twice now, in Northlight Books. Why sell children's books, yet chase children away and chastise their parents - before the kids have done anything at all? The sign on the door between the store and the bakery...More
