About Us

We have come a long way in distance and time from our beginning as booksellers in Santa Barbara, CA, in 1984. Our initial four hundred books and paper items has grown to over ten thousand. The count would be significantly more if condition and importance were not a consideration for the books we purchase and offer. 

We are located in Southern Oregon off of the I-5 corridor, seventeen miles north of the California border, near the little town called Talent. Talent is very near that famous tourist town, Ashland, noted for its Shakespeare plays. We are a pleasant five mile drive from the I-5 Talent exit. If passing through our area, please stop in and browse our book selection. Be sure to call ahead for directions and to assure our presence.

We also offer professional book binding and book repair. If you have a book with cracked hinges, detached covers, endpapers needing replacement, etc., Susan can explain your options.

Please call or e-mail us. We would be happy to advise you of the availability of the particular titles in which you have an interest.
