Tucked away on the Main Drag in Wethersfield, BLINK and you might miss your turn. Keep your Waze on, and don’t pass it by- this small Oasis is worth a stop.
Honestly, at first glance ‘That Book Store LLC’ was a bit underwhelming to me. As millennials, we tend to be a bit overstimulated by the bombastic existence of the booming Barnes and Noble. ‘That Book Store LLC’ of Wethersfield pays homage to the days of the Mom&Pop Book Shop, with a fun Connecticut twist! While my fiancé and I rummaged the book racks, we sipped on Beers and Hard Cider!
Yep-’That Book Store LLC’ is the ONLY book store in the state to sell beer, wine and hard ciders! Situated a mere 10 minutes from Hartford, ‘That Book Store LLC’ is the perfect pre-dinner date stop!
We mused over the latest mysteries, and compare our classic lists. Their local Connecticut section was quite large, and they added a volume or two to this blogger’s book collection! My fiancé was able to acquire some great gifts for the young readers in his life, and the prices were very fair! We ended up staying ( and drinking!) for a couple of hours, showing that this blogger should never judge a book(store) by its (small) cover. :-)
