I love that we have our own bookstore on the island. The couple who owns it came to TX from CO and they couldn't be nicer! Nice selection of popular fiction, books of local interest, toys and puzzles, and crafty gifts. If the book you are looking for isn't on the shelf, they will order it and have it quickly.
They sponsor author visits which are very popular. It's always a pleasant experience to visit Paragraphs!

So many, really good, books to choose from. A neat little, affordable place. I met Joni while at the airport, just making small talk. She and her husband, Griff, ended up saving us a lot of time and money that day. I can not stress how nice, and informative they were - and the pups were cute as can be too! Paragraphs is a great place for souvenirs for your bookworms back home.

Love this independent book store. Great selection of books, owners know which books to recommend based on your questions. Provide reading time for children and host authors to speak about their books.
