East Bay Booksellers, located on colorful College Avenue, is a true local hangout with a personal touch for reaching the community. Be sure to look at the events calendar located at the window on your way inside. Plan your own visit accordingly to see many local, self-published and established authors who shine at readings and book signings.

East Bay Booksellers carries 98 percent new and 2 percent used books in a warm setting, complete with cozy leather chairs to sink into and a fireplace to warm your feet. 

Visit the new fiction section in the center of the store and discover what’s trending in the world of books. There’s also a great local, national and international travel section, plus books on Bay Area cooking written by many local authors.

Check out the staff picks list and read hand-written reviews that will help guide you to your book choice. Don’t forget to ask question to the friendly and knowledgeable staff. Not many bookstores include an email link to each staff member on their website should you need to reach them for questions or special orders. I found this feature to be a true unique touch in the independent book world.
