The Green Hand Bookshop has been a topic of a post here on the blog before, and while it plays a very large part in this post, I’m going to be focusing primarily on the books I recently ordered from this secondhand book seller. I ordinarily don’t purchase enough books to dedicate entire book haul posts to (in my mind), but this one is different than any other book order I’ve made, because I had very little idea of what was going to be in the box when I opened it.
There’s Something About The Green Hand Bookstore From one end to the other, Portland (Maine) is only wanting for bookstores in the sense that in a perfect world there would be a bookstore on every block. And the best part of Portland’s bookstore scene is the variety of used bookstores across the peninsula. If I had not already fallen so deeply in love with Carlson Turner Books and Bookbindery by the time I visited The Green Hand, the latter would certainly be my favorite. It does hold quite a close second place spot, however.
