I could spend hours in this store! It has a great variety of used books and new books, ranging from local Hawaiian history to children's books. Prices are quite reasonable!

What a fabulous book store. She has quite the selection. I was looking for romance books and I wasn’t disappointed. She had many local books too. It was very charming.

There isn't too much going on in the town of Hanapepe, but the Talk Story Bookstore is the highlight (at least for a book lover like me). It's a charming independent bookstore that is packed with a varied selection of books, including popular fiction, history,...More

I stopped in while visiting a nearby museum and found an out of print book I had been searching years for. This is a must stop place for all book enthusiasts.

Known as the most western located book store in the US. These kinds of bookstores are a dying breed.

Tucked down the main street in Hanapepe, Talk Story was a nice stop on our walk. It's an eclectic mix of used books, new books and some well-curated books on Hawaii. I initially found it searching my phone for comic book stores on Kauai. They...More
