This is a nice place to stop in for a quick look around. They have some new and used books, plus some gifts. Their logo is super cute. You can ask to have it stamped or have a sticker put on your purchase.

Small local bookstore. Friendly, helpful staff. Offers many titles which deal with topics local to Salem - history, witches, potions, spells, etc. Also a good selection of contemporary fiction in case you left your book on the train or someplace.

I was a bit sceptical going in by the name on the front. Inside I found a great bookshop with helpful staff.

Stepped into Wicked Good Books on a mission to find some local history books. We weren't disappointed and quickly found a great variety of books that were very specific on subjects such as local haunts and cemetery epitaphs. More main stream books are also available...More
