From old books to new journals

Eureka Books is now carrying blank journals made from recycled hardcovers.  Some of the more interesting illustrations and pages are preserved inside.  Each book is unique and sizes vary.  Some are perfect for personal journals while others are big enough for artist sketch books.


Spooky books are lurking in the aisles

Villainous vampires, ghastly gouls and a zombie remake of an old classic await your visit to Eureka Books… if you dare.


The History of Talking During Movies

  Don't you hate it when people sit in the theater and talk through the movie? I'm especially annoyed when people explain obvious plot points to each other, like "Oh, she's really his sister…" Can you imagine what it must have been like during the silent era, when text flashed on the screen to be […]


Vintage Audubon prints on display for Arts Alive!

Come in for Arts Alive! to see original Audubon bird lithographs. These vintage prints were hand-colored under Audubon's supervision in 1840-1844.

On Friday night, September 3, from 6:30 to 8:30, we're hosting a party/reception for NORGAG […]


Dickens on Writing and Bookselling

I've been reading Oliver Twist this month, which is both comic and horrific at the same time, and you can feel the young Dickens exulting in his command of the English language and his growing confidence is palpable. High school English turned me off of Dickens for 30 years, but reading Drood, by Dan Simmons, […]


New Store Slogan?

This is an ad for the restaurant and bar that used to occupy our building. I found this in a 1920 promotional brochure for Eureka. I'm thinking we should revive the Louvre slogan: Pretty girls! Jazzy music! Good books! That's us! Eureka Books * 426 Second Street, Eureka Cal.
