Breakwater Books, an independent bookstore located on the historic Guilford Green, has been assisting generations of readers since 1972. We carry a wide selection of adult and children's books, as well as journals, calendars, and unique note cards.

Book signings are occasionally held on Saturday afternoons at the bookstore, which we announce on our website and Facebook page. 

Our staff favorites are listed in Staff Picks on our site menu and NEIBA recommendations are displayed with cards on our shelves for your browsing pleasure.  Our staff is very well read and opinionated should you need further assistance with your selections. 

If you don't see what you are looking for we will special order, most books being available in a day or two.  We do not monitor your purchases in any way except to offer a free "Book Lover's" card, which is stamped for every $20.00 you spend to be used toward a $10.00 discount when the card is filled. 

Our only policy is to keep the store simple, a formula that has served us well for 40 years.

Happy Reading!
