Second Hand Prose Books Is Closing


Although the bookstore’s business in Groton has been growing slowly but steadily — thanks to all of you — we have decided to close Second Hand Prose Books, effective March 15, 2015.

Circumstances in our personal lives are changing. While we still strongly feel that Groton is enhanced by the presence of a bookstore, and have been honored to provide this service to the community, we will no longer be in a position to do so.

Beginning today, all regular books in the store (excluding consignment and new books) will be on sale for a further 50% off. Customers with credit are welcome to use it over the next month for an even greater discount.


In Memoriam: Jerry Sarasin


“I stood in the falling snow…”

Our friend Jerry Sarasin, a novelist late in life, passed away early this morning. Some of you may have heard him read from his delightful second novel, the “Yooper” mystery Frozen Flamingo Blues, back in November last year. We wish him godspeed as he dances the Heikki Lunta in a better place.


Final Sale Week


The 2-for-1 sale continues this week and the weekend of August 16 – 17, when we will be open noon to 4:00.
