Stardew Valley: Where to find the Bookseller

Whether you start a new world for 1.6 or jump into an old one, a Bookseller will appear in town twice a season. Check your calendar for each date, it’s notified by a little air balloon icon. On that day you can find the Bookseller in Stardew Valley just above Joja Mart up the stairs. Behind Joja Mart is a set of wooden stairs that you can climb.

I’m also not quite sure whether or not you’re allowed to use the hot air balloon. All this Bookseller does is, well, sell books. But I keep looking at the hot air balloon wanting a ride. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem like the Bookseller ever offers a ride.

Although all these new features are exciting, what if you play with mods? Luckily, there are some easy ways to update your Stardew Valley mods for this 1.6 update.
