The Book Cove

is a sophisticated and friendly store right in the heart of the Pawling Village. We offer both new and out of print books for you to peruse, as well as the opportunity to experience an independent bookstore at its best. Our knowledgeable staff will be delighted to use their expertise to recommend a book or locate a rare title for you. Drop by the store, we look forward to seeing you!

We Buy Books

If you have used books that are in good condition we'd like to check them out! We are rather selective and are particularly interested in books about art, history, architecture, cooking, and classic literature. Give us a call at the store and ask for Tara or Max for more details. We make house-calls for local inquiries.
