And so we begin our final descent out of the gloom of 2016 into the outright horror that promises to be 2017...I take it you are all familiar with Bette Davis/Margot Channing's advice for these situations. The Valley, sadly, will likely be entering the new year one book store shy, as the Whately Antiquarian Book Center will be closing after 25 years. It is with sadness and a touch of envy that we see them go.
Here at Grey Matter/Troubadour, things continue as usual. We are doing our part to stave of the death of psychoanalysis by offering a selection of titles from International Universities Press. Though the press ceased operations over a decade ago, they are only now clearing out their warehouse, and we risked life and limb to remove these and other odd titles from its upper reaches (shown below).
Welcome to the Grey Matter/Troubadour Amalgamation of Books, Hadley's #1 hard-to-find source for hard-to-find books and records. We are located just off the bike path at East St. and non-motorists get a 10% discount year-round. We have a large, constantly churned selection of scholarly, scientific and general stock, nearly all priced below their internet brethren.
The construction on Rt.9 is winding down, but turning either at the second spur of West Street or one of the weird little streets thereafter is still preferable.
Just one of the potentially life-changing LP's available at the store.
Hours: M,W,TH, F 10-6; SAT 11-6; SUN 12-5; Tuesday by chance (usually 11-3)
