September 2023
September already, can you believe it? Soon that cold, wild, wind will come. But before we get ready to stack the firewood, order the oil delivery, and all the myriad other chores we are used to here in New England, there’s a few more weeks to sit outside and catch up on your reading.

I personally couldn’t be more excited to see the launch of Daniel Mason’s epic North Woods which will hit shelves in mid-September. North Woods is a New England tale spanning generations, cultures, and the mortal plane itself. I cannot recommend this book enough, and several other booksellers have added it to their best-of lists as well. Between you and me, a little birdie also told me to watch our event calendar, as there may be a chance to meet the author here in Manchester in October!

In my world of used and collectible books here at Northshire, we have made several moves recently that I hope will excite our customers, new and old. Since taking over the used collection in early 2020, I’ve worked endlessly to modernize, organize, streamline, and highlight our collection of previously-loved titles in our Manchester store. We’ve launched Northshire Rare; our extensive collection of signed first editions, curated our most-loved sections, and bumped up our in-store stock of books on Vermont, many of which are out of print. We have also just launched an eBay store for our premium collectible titles, which you can find at And, finally, we'll be hosting a blowout used book sale on the porch in Manchester this weekend. Visit our website for all the details.

I’m always happy to talk about used, rare, and out-of-print books, so please do not hesitate to reach out. You can reach me at Whatever you’re interested in, I can guarantee we can help get it into your hands.

Happy reading!

Featured Release

A taut and electrifying novel from celebrated bestselling author Lauren Groff, about one spirited girl alone in the wilderness, trying to survive

“Extraordinary… staggering…with wrenching beauty…This is a triumph.” ­–Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
“Must be read…The writing is inspired, the imaginative power near mystic.” ­–Kirkus Reviews

A servant girl escapes from a colonial settlement in the wilderness. She carries nothing with her but her wits, a few possessions, and the spark of god that burns hot within her. What she finds in this terra incognita is beyond the limits of her imagination and will bend her belief in everything that her own civilization has taught her.
