The Last Word Bookshop

Meander through stacks of used books


The Last Word deals in used books ranging from popular novels to out-of-print history books—all protected by Lester, a former stray cat who entertains customers by climbing the bookshelves. A full children’s section keeps kids occupied while parents shop for their next “me time” read.
