Independent Bookstore Day! #sdbookcrawl
 
Of course, we maintain that every day is a good day to shop small, shop local and look for books! We offer a continuously changing small amount of new, tons of used, and many unique antiquarian, hard-to-find volumes. In the last six months we have stocked a treasure trove of Easton Press (leather-bound classic lit and art monographs with gilt decorative features & silk endpapers) technical & math, Hindu philosophy and as always cookbooks! We always love to see what our book-loving clientele release to the lucky next reader!!
BIG THANKS to everyone who trades in such great titles and to all who shop here! 2019 definitely ended on a very positive "Shop Independent" wave we LOVE!

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! Our seasonal bookd drive ended in January, then we started our year-round book drive the next day. We'll always say YES! for book donations for our littlest readers.
