In case you didn't see it in today's issue of THE RECORDER newspaper, Boswell's Books, at 10 State Street in Shelburne Falls, MA, is for sale. Boswell's has been a popular locally owned independent bookseller for close to 30 years. It's had several owners over those years, it's been in a few different locations in the center of Shelburne Falls, but the one constant (besides the books) has been a cat named Boswell. The current resident feline, Miss Charlotte Adventurous Boswell, often attracts customers and other visitors to the store, as much as the wonderful selection of new and used books, both music and books on CD, games, toys, cards and calendars, and other gift items. Also, Boswell's features books and handmade crafts by local authors and artists throughout the year, and hosts special events, such as book and poetry readings and signings, on a monthly basis. Boswell's Books is a valued part of Shelburne Falls, as well as all of "West County", and the current owners, Lori and Russ, look forward to finding the right book lover(s) to take the business over and continue to make it such a desirable location for shopping, browsing, or just sitting for a while with a book, and Miss Boswell of course!
Due to health and other personal circumstances, in the last few months Lori became unable to continue managing the store on a day-to-day basis, and as partnership changes became necessary, it also became clear that the best thing for Boswell's, and its loyal (and growing) fan base, was to seek new ownership. With a wide variety of new and used books and more, as well as Miss Boswell, the store is ready for a new book- and cat-loving owner to take over.
