Bluestocking Books is located in Uptown, San Diego in the heart of Hillcrest
For 48 years, 3817 5th Ave has been an independent bookshop in the Hillcrest neighborhood of San Diego, California. Now Bluestocking Books since 1999, it is a full service book shop open every day on the street and online, offering modern amenities in an old world setting. We stock books of all subjects to fit any budget. In this bookstore you will find primarily used and new books. We also stock a few rare and scarce titles, a nice selection of new and vintage magazines, posters, ephemera, and vinyl records. Most of our inventory (updated daily!) can be ordered via the website - please inquire for details or photos of any item. We ship worldwide with USPS tracking! To special order any new or out of print title you don't see in our current inventory, contact us and we will get back to you with price and availability. We host the local poetry group Sunday Sontage every fourth Sunday at 7pm. Stop by to listen or to share your own poems or prose!
