Books you don't need in a place you can't find

We will be open Christmas Eve 11-4,
as well as Saturday Dec. 26 and Sunday Dec. 27, 11-4

  After Dec 27 we will be closing up — temporarily!— until the weather and the state of the world improves. We’re assuming that will be in early spring. We will miss you! Please stay safe and healthy and have a wonderful start to a much, much better new year.

About Us

The Montague Bookmill is a used bookstore housed in an 1842 gristmill, set on the banks of the Sawmill River, a few miles north of Amherst and Northampton, Massachusetts. Our collection leans toward the academic, but we have thousands of books, on just about everything from Austen and anarchy to Zola and zoology. Our books are generally half-price, including recent publisher’s overstocks. Don’t look for our catalogue on line; we’re not that bookstore. But if we can’t find the book you’re looking for, we’ll find you a better one you didn’t know you wanted. The Montague Mill is also home to Sawmill River Arts and the newest outpost of the Turn It Up! music and movie empire. There is great food and drink all day and deep into the night at the astonishing Lady Killigrew Cafe. And downstairs is the fantastic Alvah Stone Restaurant and Bar. If you were dining any closer to the water there would be fish in your lap. We have concerts and performances spring, summer and fall. The Bookmill and its environs are an amazing and lovely place where you can lose yourself for hours. We’ve been lost here for years.
