The Derby Square Bookstore

Piles of books everywhere.

The Derby Square Bookstore in Salem, MA is definitely unique.  You can barely walk in the store because there are stacks of books everywhere.  Finding the cash register when it's time to pay for something is also a challenge.  Somewhere, amid all the stacks, is a small "hole" where a man is hiding with a cash register.

It's hard not to fall in love with this store, but don't expect to find a particular title without help from the employees.  It appears to be pure chaos with aimless stacks of book, although supposedly there is some type of method to the madness.

This is a "must see to believe" type of store.  I am so glad I had the opportunity to visit.

    It’s awesome! But I’d be afraid a stack of books would fall and attack me! What a great store.

    Yea i agree with ^ If a kid is playing around the store and a wall of books falls on him, that would be some serious lawsuit =X

    I don’t think I could cope with this “system’ – especially because I am rather short.

    OMG. I want to go live there. And I’m fairly confident they wouldn’t notice me for at least a year.
