BOOK ENDS is a quintessential New England Independent Bookstore, located in the heart of Winchester Center since 1984.  While quaint in appearance, we are totally modern in our customer service, ordering direct from all major publishers for quick and easy special ordering and restocking.  We partner with area schools and businesses to offer competitive pricing on book orders, and we have a rotating schedule of local and bestselling authors in the store for free events.
