Books
As summer is now coming to a close and kids are starting to get back into school there may be a need to get that summer reading book they never got around to, or there are new book assignments already. So if you are looking for that very late summer reading book, want to squeeze in one last beach read, want to continue a series you started this summer, or are seeking out a new bookstore to visit, this list is for you. Compiled below are a slew of bookstores across the state and even a few across the border:

RI Monthly has consistently named them the best bookstore in Newport County since 2006.
