“Lovely”
Reviewed February 21, 2014

In need of a bookstore with a great stock of books? How about helpful and well-read employees? I have been going to this bookstore for years. I know I can find the book I am looking for and the recommendations that they have made for me and my family have been "spot-on."

“Great Independent Book Store”
Reviewed January 25, 2014

This book store is located in a shopping center where it is very easy to park. It has a new section, with all kinds of magasines from around the world, a very good selection of books and they are always willing to order your special request. They have interesting authors speak weekly. They also have a café, another annex with used books. It is a very well designed space with excellent staff. I know these days of amazon it is tempting to order books on line but I think it is important to support your independent bookstore or they will just go away. I give a big thumbs up for a place to browse, attend lectures, have food and buy gifts.

“Best Bookstore in the Bay Area Bar None”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Book Passage is the Best Bookstore in the Bay area. From the authors that they bring in to introduce their newly published books; to the restaurant luncheons they schedule for cookbook authors; to the classes for writers of every genre; to their language and art history classes and to their support of Hospice by the Bay Area in selling the used books that are donated; You could not find another bookstore as terrific and as dedicated to the community as Book Passage.

“Terrific Travel Book Selection”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is a great family owned bookstore that has made it on service when so many others have gone out of business. Friendly and knowledgeable staff makes this a go-to place for many types of books. It also has some great classes. Sign up for their newsletter to find out which authors are speaking each month. The variety is broad - they have a second location in San Francsico. Check it out.
