Latest Edition of A Vacationer's Guide to Rural New England Bookstores Has Been Published

This updated version of Richard F. Wright's, A Vacationer's Guide to Rural New England Bookstores, includes more bookstores, an expanded used-rare book shop section, and several of his One-Day Bookstore-Tour itineraries for the serious bibliophile.

Dec. 21, 2012 - PRLog -- New England Bookstore Publishing today announced that its latest edition of A Vacationer’s Guide to Rural New England Bookstores has been published. It’s available online through Amazon and is also available at many local bookstores throughout New England.

The book is a Guide highlighting author Richard F. Wright’s view of the best independent full-service bookstores and the best used or antiquarian bookstores near vacation travel destinations in New England. The book is divided into three sections: Full-Service Independent Bookstores, Used-Rare Book Shops, and One-Day Bookstore-Tours that feature recommended itineraries for visiting several book shops in one day.

“This is the Guide I would have liked to have had handy during the past 30 years I have been vacationing in New England,” said Wright. “The Guide describes 70 bookstores, including 39 full-service bookstores and 31 used book shops that I would recommend to anyone who has a serious interest in books and bookstores,” added Wright.

Wright, 62, of Jefferson MA has converted a lifetime avocation of book-reading and book-collecting into a mini-cause to save what he describes as a threatened species; namely, the rural bookseller. On his blog, Richard-Wright.blogspot.com, Wright comments regularly about the fate of rural bookstores and his findings as he visits the shops throughout New England.

He also maintains a website: http://guidetonewenglandbookstores.com/, which is dedicated to keeping the listings in his Guide up to date between editions. The most recent edition already has an update, showing a name change for one of his favorite bookstores: Myopic Books has changed to Paper Nautilus Bookstore.  “Keeping up with the changing landscape of the rural bookstore is always a challenge,” said Wright

Following the lead provided by one Vermont bookshop, Wright has added a series of One-Day Bookstore-Tours for visitors to use in planning a personalized itinerary of book shop stops. “On its website, The Book Shed, of Benson, VT, owned by Joseph Trenn, suggested four bookstores to visit on a single day,” said Wright. “This gave me the idea to assemble several more “one-day” adventures for the serious bibliophile,” he added. His Guide includes seven of his favorite One-Day Bookstore-Tours.
