Check out our new store hours on the Contact/Hours page!

Welcome to Bedlam. We provide a curated cache of fine used books, focusing on academic presses, literature, arts, humanities, sciences, and esoteric subjects. We aim to be an intellectual, cultural, and community hub encouraging diversity and access to information, as well as healthy living through our offerings of fresh organic juices and smoothies.

Buy a Gift Certificate

for that special friend, family member, partner, or just to put a little more love and knowledge out there in the world. If you choose more than one gift card, please get in touch with us on the Contact page to let us know if you want separate gift certificates or one for the full amount.


When you shop at Bedlam in January, a portion of your dollars goes to the YWCA of Central Massachusetts to help them reach their funding goal for a year-long renovation project led by an all-woman construction team! Consider donating!

We buy books from customers. We also sell audiobooks. For information on both of these things, please see our FAQS page.
