We roamed around a lot, and found this little bookstore. It was small but had some great books. If you are looking for a book to read on the beach, I recommend stopping here before going elsewhere.

Well they have a kind of B&in collection but the prices were great! Marvelous assistance with the fillet books. Staff went on Amazon to find authors for me.

I love this store. Oz the bookstore cat oversees the joint. They have an incredible card selection and any book you want (if it's not in the store, they will order it for you). An excellent local selection, great kids' section, and lots of fun...More

I love going to this book store, it has a great atmosphere and a cute fluffy cat you can pet. The store owner and staff are wonderful and will do everything she can to find the book you want.

Visited on suggestion of teen daughter. Best choice as it lead us to the Where's Waldo hunt. Great game and got us to visit many businesses we wouldn't have otherwise.

This is a wonderful place to visit and buy when you are on vacation or anytime. Great for children and adults for day or evening reading and relax after a busy day at the beach.

One of our go-to places in Seaside. Attractive small bookstore with decent collection of books and specialty greeting cards. Don't forget to pet the kitty.

Cute bookstore with something for everyone inc adult coloring books and art supplies. In a time where bookstores are closing, it was nice to walk in with my 11year old who loves books. The store is nicely organized as well.
