We liked this store many cool books from a local shop. They also had lots of postcards here that were very funny. If you go there you will laugh at the California real estate postcard. We automatically loved this cute little store.

I bought three books, two greeting cards, and a ladybug flash drive over 2 days. Loved this little place and like to support local book stores against the faceless corporate giants.

Interesting selection (I had a hard time picking just one) and an easy walk from the beach or the market. Make sure you check out the children's section! It's a cozy little area tucked into the back of the store.

Excellent beach just 45 minutes north of San Fran. Very wide like FL beaches. Nice breakers too! An old fashion beach town of Stinson Beach with local eateries only----no commercial joints!

We were pleasantly surprised by the size of this bookstore, and the great selection - especially the kids area at the back! They also have a nice selection of cards, notepaper, and Folkmanis puppets. Definitely worth a stop, particularly if you're travelling with children.
