  • Gene's is a book lovers paradise on an island paradise! So many books at great prices. Both stores even smell "booky!" Very neatly arranged. Clean. Thousands of titles. Even if you don't buy...

  • This is a great bookstore for avid readers. (FYI…only books are sold here….no gifts or accessories) The store is much bigger than it looks from the outside. It is very well organized with books filling shelves throughout five buildings. There is also a quaint sitting area outside. The staff is friendly and helpful.
  • Great selection, very friendly staff. My wife and I stopped by just to browse, but came away with 3 books due to helpful staff, excellent inventory and fun displays. Love the attitude of the workers as you can tell they love what they do. Enjoyed visiting with the owner also. Highly recommend
