Husband loves book selections on environment. I buy gorgeous gift cards for future use, and sometimes gifts as well.

I've been coming to Mendocino for over 30 years. Sadly so many of the wonderful shops I liked to browse in have since closed due to the economy or retired owners. I am always so happy to see the Gallery Bookshop open - It's a little piece of magic that I cherish. Browsing through all the books is such a... More

Large and friendly book store. They always have nice things the regular, run of the mill book stores do not. I always find great cards here, childrens books, stylish reading glasses, pocket calendars and beautiful wall calendars worthy of framing. We visit Mendocino village at least once a year and this place is always a MUST-SEE for us.

You can spend hours here ~ if you like books, you will love this shop and it also has an excellent card and calendar section. I save up all year to spend in this shop ~ being reminded of how much I love time in a well loved and well stocked book store. Allow yourself an hour at least...with time... More

Nothing corporate here. A wonderful, well organized bookshop with attractive displays, broad selection of books in just about every category, and charming "accessories" for book lovers. The friendly and knowledgeable staff complete the package. Linger, browse, enjoy!

Just when you thought small bookstores have all vanished, you run across one like this. Not only did they have a wide variety of books, they have a little sitting area with benches in the front near the window. We bought 4 books, and a journal. Just accidentally bumped into the gem......

Surprised to see such a nice bookstore in such a small town. No wonder it was crowded. Great displays and a surprisingly broad selection of books.

This is good for adults and kids, laid out the way a good non-chain store should be. They had a bunch of cute Easter stuff right upfront, since that was the holiday weekend. Also, there was a cat perched on the register next to some cat books. Yes, a real cat. Good selection, and not just books.
