“Best Bookstore in Town!”
Reviewed 15 August 2014

This is a sweet little bookstore with very reasonable prices that will keep book lovers captivated for hours. There is a good selection of children's books in an extensive children's corner where people are welcome to sit and read, as well as journals, maps, and gifts. The shop has a vintage feel while still offering new and interesting titles, some commonly known (so you're likely to find just what you were looking for, and if not, they are more than willing to order), others new and not carried by bigger bookstores. I would recommend this book shop.

“Remarkable independent book store in Belfast, Maine!”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

Left Bank Books in downtown Belfast, ME is one of the best independent book stores ever! I went in for just a minute (haha!) and ended up spending an hour browsing and buying. Terrific selection of books -- some I've wanted to read and some I hadn't known about and now want to read. Calendars and cards too! For all you bookstore and book lovers out there -- Left Bank Books is a must-visit on the Midcoast of Maine.
