Welcome to the Broadside!


247 Main Street, Northampton, MA 01060     413-586-4235



Once again this holiday season, we are urging customers to order early. We have been warned to expect supply shortages of books as well as shipping delays caused by multiple national and global conditions.  These include the scarcity of everything from workers to printing firms to shipping containers, and of course, COVID uncertainties. We strongly urge  you to order as soon as possible before supplies run out.

We're dedicated to good books, personal service and community involvement. Through the search bar above you can go beyond books we have in stock to tap into a wider universe of some 2.4 million titles. Order through our site, pick up your books at the store or have them shipped directly to you or to someone else. Enjoy the site or come visit us in the store, where our knowledgeable staff will be happy to help you.

We believe that reading enriches life, so we provide a high-quality selection of books on a wide variety of subjects;

We believe in personalized customer service, so we go the extra mile whenever we can;

And we believe there is a strong, mutually beneficial bond between independent bookstores and the communities they love and serve.

We appreciate your support.
