A hidden gem inside of a mall
Aug 2017 • Friends
This is such a wonderful indie bookstore. I didn't know it was there for quite awhile. Between this, the bakery, and the ice-cream shop, you can definitely spend a great Saturday here. Best to come on the bike and avoid looking for a parking spot.

Less will be spent at Larkspur thanks to taxi waiting ban
Oct 2017 • Couples
We adore this book shop, yes I'm a Brit, with an American family now in Marin. Often we have purchased books for ourselves and Grand daughter as well as snacking but if we have to rely on getting away from the Landing the fact that taxis cant "hover" for customers will stop us being regular visitors in future. Get the moron(s) who banned taxis at the Ferry Terminal to alter their ways!

Cool Local Bookstore

We stopped at this book store while walking around the Marin Mart location. The layout of the store is very open and accommodating. They have a wide variety of books for all ages.

Purchased on the return

Good little bookstore. We walked in as were returning back home and my 10 year old wanted to buy a book. They seem to have a nifty collection of books, neatly presented and easy to find selections.

A great place to browse after lunch...

Good selection of books, with more variety than most bookstores. Friendly and helpful staff. There is a fun play area for kids just in front of the bookstore which is by the Farm Shop Restaurant, Rustic Bakery, and near Soul Cycle.

Book Club
Oct 2015 • Solo
Diesel is not only a well stocked bookstore in a convenient location for Marin bookies and families, it is a welcoming spot for book browsing and for introducing and captivating young and mature readers with many special events featuring authors and their works. One special offering is a monthly book club that has been meeting since fall of 2014. Books are chosen by members, read and discussed by the group who attend each month. Not everyone comes to every meeting and new members are welcome. Discussions are thoughtful and enjoyable. Light snacks are set out. This is a loosely formal group with open minds and enthusiasm for the delights of reading.

Quaint Yet Organized! A Wonderful Little Store
Aug 2015 • Friends
This bookstore is fabulous! Very well stocked, a great mixture of eclectic finds with the basic staples. Whether looking for a specific book, say a classic or the newest best seller, or looking to browse and stumble upon something great, this little bookstore will meet all your needs. They have a fantastic mythology section, as well as a corner of journals that I had to tear myself away from.
The store is very bright and clean, with everything easy to find, and no crazy stacks of books to sort through. Browsing is very simple. The clerk was also quite kind and ready to help if needed, without hovering or making one feel pressured. It was a very charming place, and I could've spent hours there. It features some chairs and nooks to sit and peruse, as well as everything being clearly labeled and organized.
I would recommend to anyone in the area, especially any bibliophiles, because this homey yet efficient little shop is perfect.

I was shopping late for a birthday gift just a few days from a birthday.
The book I wanted was not in inventory, they order the book and had it to me a day early, the day of the birthday.
