There is books downstairs and a record/music store above. Both stores have an excellent selection and something for everyone.

It's so rare anymore to find a great independent bookstore, let alone on 30-A. But this is just an addictive throw-back you'll love to experience when you're at Seaside. We must all hope places like this stop disappearing. You'll be amazed at the variety in this bookstore -- they pack a TON in a fairly small space. And there are... More

One of my favorite bookstores. Yes, it is small in size, but the diversity and quality of the book selection exceeds that of many bookstores three times its size. Looking for local authors, you cN find them here. Looking for current non fiction, the selections are varied. Adult fiction, youth fiction, architecture, are all in abundant supply. Then, upstairs you'll... More

It's always nice to see an independent bookstore doing well in these troubled times of the big box store. During my visits, the staff has always been extremely helpful and friendly, regardless of the fact that the place is almost always slammed full of people. Definitely go there when you're in Seaside.

As a total book nerd, I'm a huge Sundogs addict. My husband and I frequently drive to Seaside just to hang out at Sundogs. They have a fabulous selection of unique books, especially if you're looking for things with a Southern twist. It's also one of my first stops when hunting for a little gift for someone. They have a... More

Loved this little store. Didn't expect so much inventory. And the music was fab...modern and fresh. It was quite a nice surprise. Not surprisingly, they had plenty of good reads about 30A which I'm obsessed with. This little community/slice of utopia is veru interesting.

Oh I love this store! It's crammed full of popular books, locally written books and ephemera of all kinds. The store carries beautiful, unique greeting cards and a smattering of Lily Pulitzer stationary.

Bookstores are one of my favorite places. I find such solace in roaming around searching for my next great read. When we stopped in Seaside for the day, I popped in this quaint, little store and was so excited about what I found. Bookstores like Sundog make you want to get lost in the titles with your cup of coffee... More

I'm a librarian so I love a good book store. Tons of great beach reads, beautiful (and inexpensive) hardback books, tons of paperbacks and they even had an author on the front porch with whom I chatted for a while. I could spend hours and a ton of money here. Great selection of book you want to read. Run in... More
