Springtime in Old Town

  Not only do we have great books, we have a great view of the signs of spring. There’s nothing like big, pink blossoms to signal a change of the seasons.


Local Author Joan Dunning at Eureka Books for Arts Alive!

Saturday night is Arts Alive! in Eureka from 6 to 9 pm, and stores will be open late showing art. Local author and artist Joan Dunning will be at Eureka Books signing her new children’s book about the marbled murrelet, Seabird in the Forest.  It’s a very touching and beautifully illustrated tale about the life […]


Especially Special Blank Journals

Our blank book bins are restocked with recycled blank journals — former hardcover books repurposed by Ex Libris Anonymous for a new incarnation to fit your blank book needs. We are especially excited about this batch because our staff hand picked these great, old hardbacks from our very own overstocked shelves for a trip to […]


Found in a Book

Seabird in the Forest

This just in: Local author Joan Dunning's new book about a mysterious ocean bird known as the Marbled Murrelet hit our shelves this afternoon. Dunning is both author and illustrator of Seabird in the Forest, a children's book that chronicles the early life of a Murrelet chick high in the canopy of an old-growth forest.  […]


Beatle book mania

We recently acquired a fab collection of books on rock n' roll's most famous band.  Early Beatles, post-Beatles, Beatle wives, Beatle magazines, coffee table book Beatles, paperback writer Beatles — we have it all.  The picture shows a sample of the full collection. Come check it out, we're here to Help! But please, no screaming.


Wear your favorite works

Our selection of literary t-shirts just got bigger. We now have shirts bearing the covers of such classics as Catcher in the Rye, Catch-22, On the Road, Slaughter House Five, Atlas Shrugged, Invisible Man, Fahrenheit 451 and Animal Farm.

Now Suskin […]


The Poem Store

Last night, we welcomed Jacqueline Suskin into our store for a night of poetry-writing.  She sets up her typewriter and creates poetry to order on any subject.  Here's the North Coast Journal's Bob Doran asking for a poem on "transitions." Jacqueline usually sets up on the Arcata Plaza during the Farmers Market; we were glad […]


Poems written to order at Arts Alive!

Actually, Suskin does not charge for her poems. Her motto is “Your subject, your price,” and she accepts […]
