Several people have asked, "What does INDIE BOUND mean?"  This refers to independent retail stores. 

When you buy locally more of your money stays in the community. We have jobs for local people. We are 

passionate about what we do. You can take advantage of the unique, specialized items offered for sale, including art, 

cards and books by local people. The "INDIENEXT" display just inside our front door is for those titles read by bookstore staff and 

predicted to be the next Bestsellers - and most often they are!

If you would like to receive our monthly bookstore newsletter, and announcements of special events like Author Signings, please 

call 207-747-4232 or mailto:Letterpress.Karen@gmail.com

A mind needs books as a sword needs a whetstone, if it is to keep its edge. ― George R.R. Martin
