Sometimes there is a wall between me and books. 

I blame the internet and popular culture.  I only have so many books to read in my lifetime and I've got to get to them.  Why?  (How dare you ask that!)  Because they feed my inner world that grows richer and richer with each good book.  But sometimes (hopefully not often) I am distracted by an article on the internet, or information on Wikipedia, or something on Netflix, and what do I gain from it?  Nothing. 

Manchester By The Book is located in downtown Manchester. Mark can be reached at (978) 525-2929 or visit the shop's website at
