We sell books – new, used & rare, GIFT CERTIFICATES, new & vintage magazines, greeting cards, ephemera, buttons, stickers, and magnets.
We ship daily & want to be your neighborhood bookshop wherever you are. Ask about our baby book drive. Orders welcome!
We are a “brick-n-mortar” REAL BOOKSHOP where magical life-changing books are discovered, toddlers squeal in delight at the sight of a book they recognize, old friends strolling together find common loves in literature & history, true loves meet and dogs sit politely for a treat.
Yes, there are random philosophical quotes uttered aloud and books recommended by friends and strangers alike.
We are a community whether we know you or not, fellow reader and book-lover: welcome to our tradition! Our street address has housed a bookstore since 1967; we currently stock mostly used, new & antiquarian books, some magazines plus we find/order both new and used books – just inquire!
We have regular deliveries for the classic reprints and new releases
The store is located at 3817 Fifth Ave, San Diego, CA 92103
