If you're visiting the Bay Area and want a fun, informative evening, stop by Kepler's for one of their many free talks with contemporary authors. Most talks are free but you can support this great independent bookstore by buying the authors' books (which they usually sign) or picking up another one of the great books they have in stock.

This is a great bookstore with a helpful and knowledgeable staff. Even when looking for a specific title it's so much nicer to browse Kepler's expansive shelves than to order online.

A Menlo Park and peninsula institution since 1955, Kepler's books keeps in business when other bookstores have been torpedoed by Amazon due to its loyal customer base, willingness to innovate, and strong schedule of author appearances. Even if you prefer to read book electronically (as I do) you can support Keplers by buying their versionf of e-books by Kobo.

For some Kepler's is a bit like a religion. All gifts are Kepler's related and all time and money goes towards this lovely little independent bookstore. It's a nice place to wander in and peruse and it's also a place to go if you are looking for something special or specific. The staff is knowledgeable, kind and courteous and if... More

Kepler's is extremely helpful with ordering a book that is not available. Kepler's also host book readings which are quite enjoyable.
