Bell's Books

536 Emerson St., Palo Alto, CA 94301 || (650) 323-7822
When I die and go to Heaven, I will be seriously disappointed if this store and Acres of Books aren't there...a wonderful store, with something for everyone, from antiquarian to recent novels to genre and children's books. Prices are good. The store goes on practically forever, with room after room and an upstairs with more rooms and...you get the picture.

Not only that, but it's right by CalTrain, University Avenue and the Stanford Theater! The only thing that could make this store better would be a resident cat.


317 Castro St., Mountain View, CA 94041 || (650) 968-7323
A wonderful bookstore- lots of genre fiction, a good selection of nonfiction, plus LPs, CDs, books on tape, magazines and you-name-it. Good prices, friendly staff, lots of great restaurants and coffeehouses nearby. Who could ask for more? other.

Curious Book Shoppe

23 E Main St., Los Gatos, CA 95032 || (408) 354-5560
A lovely book store, the cuteness of the 'Shoppe' in the name notwithstanding (it is Los Gatos, after all...). Good antiquarian stock, rather pricey but value for the money.

Feldman's Books

1170 El Camino Real, Menlo Park, CA 94025 || (650) 326-5300
Used to be East/West books. A good store, wide selection...and don't miss the other part of the store in the back behind the garden!

Extremely reasonable prices and good stock.
