About Us

DDG was founded in 1991 and has been Farmington's Independently owned and operated bookstore for the last 31 years. We love books, and believe passionately in a sustainable local community. We have been recognized nationally with the 2014 Panell Award, which recognizes a bookstore which has enriched its community by bringing exceptional creativity to foster a love of reading in and outside the bookstore, and the 2015 Maine School Board Association Business Friend of Education Award. DDG regularly partners with UMF, local schools, and nonprofit organizations to enrich the cultural life of Farmington. We appreciate your business!

DDG is owned and operated by Kenny Brechner. Apart from the bookstore Kenny, writes a weekly Shelftalker column in Publishers Weekly, has a column in The Daily Bulldog, and is a past member of the American Bookseller's Association Board of Directors. Here is a fun interview: Face Out: ABA Board Member Kenny Brechner on His Life Among Books.
