Happy Holidays, Book Lovers! It's the most groovy time of the year and we're excited to feature some of our favorite titles. Make your list and we will order all of your favorites!

Books give babies brainpower!
Featured staff favorites: * Holidays on Ice by David Sedaris * Watership Down by Richard Adams * Good and Mad by Rebecca Traister * Cat's Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut
Pete the Cat's Groovy Guide to Life by Dean & Dean * Various Elephant & Piggie books * Dover Thrift Editions
...in stock brand new because our faves don't come in as used books often enough!!
Groove to the neighborhood this December!
It feels good to cozy up with the family on a cold winter's night with a stack of books, but maybe also an adventure or two in the great urban outdoors awaits? May we suggest...
Fabulous Hillcrest taste 'n' Tinis
Thursday Dec 12 Stroll the neighborhood, enjoying small bites & sipping sample cocktails at participating indie businesses (ticketed event). We'll be offering our family-friendly signature Cinnamon Apple Tea, a warm & toasty respite from winter's chill (no ticket required for our place!)
They are adorable of course, but did you know that baby books are building blocks of brain development? It's true - to grow at a healthy rate, babies require books & cuddly, being-read-to time! Every winter we collect books for the UCSD High Risk Infant Follow-Up Program via Reach Out and Read
. Little ones receive the gift of a book during pediatric check-ups for 2-3 years as their new parents learn how to utilize books to help their baby. These are kids at risk for neurological problems or developmental delays & really need some extra help. For many it's their first book. We have a selection of board books to engage & delight; you can bring in clean, nice books for the program or order the favorites for the next generation to love too! Collecting through January 2020!.

We are a "brick-n-mortar" REAL BOOKSHOP where magical life-changing books are discovered, toddlers squeal in delight at the sight of a book they recognize, old friends strolling together find common loves in literature & history, true loves meet and dogs sit politely for a treat. Yes, there are random philosophical quotes uttered aloud and books recommended by friends and strangers alike. We are community whether we know you or not, fellow reader and booklover: welcome to our tradition! Our street address has housed a bookstore since 1967; the 3rd owner & staff (for ~19 years now!) intend to carry on the full-service neighborhood bookshop customs as long as there is a demand. We stock mostly used books and order both new and used books -just inquire. We have regular deliveries for the classic reprints and new releases.
