The Gallery Bookshop would be a terrific bookstore anywhere- it is particularly enjoyable in Mendocino. There are personal reviews tastefully placed to many of the books. This is a fun place to visit.

I must visit the Gallery Bookshop every year when we visit Mendocino. They have a great selection of books in the cutest little shop situated across the street from the ocean. What could be better. Plus an awesome cat who keeps you company while you look through your purchases. If you're a book lover, you'll probably love it. Because it's... More

There were so many interesting books and other items, it was impossible to make a selection. I wanted to buy it all. My mom and I went today, and are going again tomorrow, because we just loved it!

I was able to find some wonderful books in this well-appointed book store. It is spacious and well organized, with lovely ocean views, lots of benches for perusing books and a friendly shop cat. I loved this book store!

I love that so many of the books have notes from the staff explaining what is wonderful about them. The science fiction/fantasy section seemed especially well curated on this visit.

This is a great little book store in the heart of Mendocino. Nice selection of both hard back and soft cover books. Also, is a great spot to find books on local history and they have a very nice section of children's books as well. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly and they will never rush you. All in all,... More

The thing about Mendocino is that it's full of people who are doing their own thing and they're doing it their way because they're not owned by some conglomerate a thousand miles away. That's part of the charm of the Northern coast... cell phone signals are weak, Wi-Fi is practically non-existent and there are independent book stores!! This is a... More

My husband and I were recently in Mendocino and enjoyed poking around this book shop. Their selection of funny, unusual birthday cards kept me entertained for some time. I bought a bunch and so I'm in pretty good shape for sibling birthday cards in 2015. The woman who waited on us at the register was friendly. I bought a copy... More

A simply fabulous book store. Stop here every visit to buy a book I never have time to read until later.
