  • Fun, charming and organized store. Lots of history books and non fiction but has some used gems of all sorts. I never leave without a book, has great kids section. Staff is knowledgeable and friendly. Owner who orders the books brings their cute dogs sometimes.
  • Wonderful bookshop, located in a 4 room adobe building on the town’s main square. Great selection of books peculiar to the area and it’s history as well as best sellers and classic novels and books. Very well curated: on the day of our visit there was a display of books on campers, vans for camping, and little houses together with some toys of the same theme. Fun! Electic and educated taste, worth a stop to browse and enjoy the ambiance.
