A leading independent bookseller in Contra Costa County
Our selection of books is unmatched; it changes daily as we buy their books from our customers. About half of our books are new and the other half are used and rare. Bestsellers in trade paperback size (larger than "pocket books") are our specialty. Our friendly staff always has suggestions for those who are looking for new authors. Drop by and browse a while in our delightful world of books and accessories.
We hope that you will do your part to support local businesses because for every $100 you spend at a local independent business, $68 will stay in the community. When you spend that same $100 at a national chain, only $43 stays in your community. We are losing a lot of our small businesses and soon we will have only big box stores in which to shop. So please visit your favorite mom and pop stores often and keep them open.
Love 'em or Lose 'em SHOP LOCAL EVEN FOR ONLINE PURCHASES
To shop online for regular physical books, audio books, and ebook editions, use the search box at the top of the right-hand column of this and every page of this website. Many of the books you find will NOT be in-stock in the store, but will be shipped direct to you by our warehouse. Or, you can call to special-order for store pickup.
Thanks for shopping locally and keeping your dollars in our area.
