Why not display books from the New York Times Best Sellers list? Well, we believe that displaying books in our store that are a direct representation of what our neighbors — the San Francisco Bay Area — are reading is a more accurate depiction of our area. You’ll find many of these books in the front of our store shelves and also here on our website that are available for purchase.

Nothing beats the experience of coming into our bookstore. We’d love to help you find the perfect book, but if you simply cannot make it in, we make it easy to find everything we’re carrying in the shop in our online store. You can even reserve your copy or have us order it for you right from our online store. We’ll message you when the book arrives.

Back to Square One

Usually, the phrase "back to square one" means something fell through, but, in our case, it means we're able to move FORWARD. After we signed the store lease about a month ago, we kicked into high gear in demolishing interior (non-load-bearing) walls that we didn't...

Let There Be Light

I haven't blogged in a while because there's not really anything exciting going on down at the store. My step-son, who's doing a lot of the grunt-work with the demolition, got sidelined this week with a bad cold, so nothing happened. Last weekend, we rented a...
