Bloomsbury Books is a small independant book store for book lovers, located at 290 E Main Street Ashland. The store is celebrating it’s 34th anniversary of business in Ashland. It’s so good to see a thriving independant book store here in Ashland that is very well supported by the locals and visitors alike, there are so few good book stores left in America.
Bloomsbury Books got it’s name from the Bloomsbury district in London that is associated with writers, artists and intellectuals, one of these prominate writers was Virginia Woolf, the book store features a picture of Virginia Woolf as their logo, it is seen on paper advertising and in the store, also on their website.
When you go to the book store don’t forget to go upstairs and visit the cozy and comfortable Coffee House, for great coffee ( my favourite coffee ) or a delicous lunch, snack or treat. Take your book and settle down with your choice of beverage and enjoy an afternoon.

Here are some of my favourite books…
THE BOYS IN THE BOAT
Daniel James Brown
Now in paperback, a best-seller and a staff favorite, this book traces the story of an American rowing team that defeated elite rivals at Hitler’s 1936 Berlin Olympics.
Widowed at forty in a small town in Western Ireland with not enough money and four children, Nora is one of contemporary fiction’s most memorable female characters. Toibin’s ability to capture the intricacy and drama of ordinary lives is reminiscent of the work of Alice Munro.
THE WARS OF THE ROSES
Dan JonesThe next chapter in British history from the best-selling author ofThe Plantagenets. Jones makes history exciting and relevant.
Who doesn’t need to laugh this winter? Cleese, the mind behind “Monty Python” and “Fawlty Towers” gives us a memoir that is as silly, clever and laugh-aloud funny as the best of his very British comedy.
