Welcome to The Toadstool Bookshops of southwestern New Hampshire, the Monadnock Region's Most Fascinating Bookstores

Now available - FREE SHIPPING - via Media Mail

Just choose Media Mail at checkout  

                 Our doors are closed and will remain closed as we watch the results of testing before we determine it makes sense to open. The real pleasure of a bookstore is in the joy of browsing and discovery and until we are sure people will feel they can safely enjoy that experience we will simply continue with our current policy of "curbside delivery" and mailing.

                Just call or email ahead to make arrangements and we will bring your purchase out to you in the parking lot. We do believe that books offer a wonderful way to be both informed and entertained, especially if movement is limited. We are offering free shipping via Media Mail. You may place orders at this website anytime - we welcome your orders! They are important to us during this difficult time. We plan to be available to you by phone from 10 am to 6 pm Monday through Sunday in Keene 352- 8815, 10 am - 5 pm Monday through Saturday in Peterborough 924-3543, and  10 am to 5pm Monday through Saturday in Nashua 673-1734. We are happy to help with any questions you have. Email is a great way to be in touch with us.

           We look forward to your orders and thank you very, very much for supporting your local businesses.

     Did you know we have moved our Milford store to the Somerset Plaza, 375 Amherst St, Rte 101 A in Nashua?  It's just 15 minutes down 101A in a larger space right next to Market Basket!  We have room for more books and the space to better display them. We invite you to come take a look and hope you will discover many new and fascinating books.  We can't wait to show you around. 

     We opened the store in Milford in the late spring of 1989 and have seen a generation of readers grow up. We are very grateful for all the support you have given us over the years and can only hope you will enjoy visiting us in the new location.     

  Now available EBOOKS from KOBO.

      Kobo offers a huge variety of ebooks and many are at discounted prices. Their E-books are compatible with most E-readers including their own Kobo, the Nook, Ipads, and Android devices. But not the Kindle. Please check out the new KOBO link to your right. As an affiliate we will benefit financially in a small way if you go through our link and set up your account after having linked from us. Your future purchases through that account, whether originating here or direct to Kobo will generate a little revenue for us. This will be most helpful as we continue to maintain the "bricks and mortar" stores filled with real books which we hope you enjoy. Thank you!
