It might sound silly to open a bookstore when everything is available digitally nowadays. With the closure of Borders it seems even less likely that an independent bookstore would be a thriving small business. The truth is that independent bookstore are opening everyday and they offer something that online stores can’t compete with.
There is something magical about a independent book shop. ‘Shop Local’ has become a mantra for striving communities across the nation. Although books can be bought online, we know that personal recommendations, not projected by an algorithm, provide more value to the consumer.
We have worked hard to curate the perfect mix of stock in store and online. You can now shop here and in-store. You can also pre-order new releases from us. If you don't see what you are looking for, give us a call and we will try to find it for you 860-529-5500. We are happy to order any item/author you want that we don't currently carry. This is your bookstore!
As book lovers who recently transferred from Florida, we were spoiled by the amount of independent local bookshops. Ever since we made Connecticut our home, we have been looking for a local bookstore to call our own. You know, the sort of store we can go in and get personalized recommendations. We want a place that hosts authors and book clubs and has big comfy chairs. There wasn't anything like that here. So we opened up our own book store.


Where is THAT BOOK STORE located?

That Book Store centrally located for residents and vistors in the cities of Southern Hartford, Newington, Rocky Hill, and Wethersfield.
We are at 446 Silas Deane Hwy. Wethersfield, CT 06109


How does free delivery work?

If you need to have your books delivered to you, and you are in Wethersfield, we will happily deliver right to you!

When making your order, chose "delivery" and use your Wethersfield address for where to deliver, then leave a comment in your order saying you would like delivery and a telephone number you can be reached at. We will call you to arrange a time for us to drop off your items to you. 



When will THAT BOOK STORE be open?

We are open right now. Where have you been?
We are open 7 days a week now. 



What's Next?

We are working on aquiring a iquor license for That Book Store. We would like to be a place you can come in, get a drink, and browse. We have an upcoming meeting with the town on November 7th. If the town approves it, we will be applying for our state liquor license. Serving alcohol is just one thing we hope will set us apart from other stores and help us get to our goal of opening up a full coffee shop/bar downstairs.
