About Us

On the Dot Books is an independent bookstore in Dorchester, MA, Boston's largest and most diverse neighborhood. Located inside Dot2Dot Cafe, we stock a highly curated selection of new fiction, nonfiction, cookbooks, children's literature, as well as toys, gifts, and other fun things.

We launched in June 2014 with a stall at the Ashmont/Peabody Square Farmers Market. We are working on opening a brick & mortar location. In the meanwhile, we work with our partner organizations to share our love of books and the arts in and around Dorchester.

We are a member of the American Booksellers Association and the New England Independent Booksellers Association.

On the Dot Books is owned by Yooree Losordo, a Dorchester resident and mom of two. She is one of only two Asian-American owners of a general interest bookstore in the entire US.
