Spooky Stuff for Halloween

We're decorating the store for Halloween today (it is the 13th, afterall) and we're putting out the typical books on vampires and ghosts, but what better season to display the creepiest item in the store: a 17th-century broadside from the Popish Plot in England. Justice in the 17th Century: "To be hanged by the Neck, […]


Amy Stewart in the New York Times

Imagine my surprise when I went to the New York Times website and saw local author Amy Stewart (and Eureka Books co-owner) on the home page. The story is scheduled to run in tomorrow (May 20).


Wicked Plants an Indie Bestseller!

The American Booksellers Association just released their weekly list of bestsellers at independent boookstores. This week, Eureka's own Amy Stewart's Wicked Plants (signed copies available in the store now) is #25, and "on the rise." ON THE RISE   25. Wicked Plants: The Weed That Killed Lincoln's Mother and Other Botanical Atrocities Amy Stewart, Briony […]


Another Local Star

Barbara Kerley, the award-winning Humboldt County children's book author, added another kudo to her resume (which already includes a Caldecott Honor, among other awards)—a starred review from Publisher's Weekly for her latest: One World, One Day. Barbara will be signing her latest at Northtown Books, in Arcata, on Friday, May 8.


Boing Boing Baby!

Wicked Plants by local author Amy Stewart is on Boing Boing. I'm not really hip enough to know what this means, but as the Internet-savvy person who told me about it said, "As far as super cool web news goes, it doesn't get any better than this." Here's a photo of the book launch party […]


Faces of the Forgotten

From time to time, we end up with collections of old photos. It can be depressing to buy up someone else's family history–all those long dead and nearly forgotten faces staring blanking from carte-de-viste photographs and cabinet cards. We adopt them hoping someone else will eventually give them a good home. We have at least […]


Walk In Traffic

  You never know what's going to walk in the front door here at Eureka Books. Today we bought a nice 5th edition (second state, for those who like minutiae) of The Wizard of Oz, dating from about 1925. It has been protected by a reproduction dust jacket, so the book itself if very clean […]


Hello Dali

Along with the Wizard of Oz book mentioned above, we also picked up a nice Salvador Dali etching of Don Quixote. It's not a great rarity, but it is a nice, classic image from the Spanish surrealist.


Shelf Awareness Comes to Eureka

Shelf Awareness, the e-newsletter for booksellers, sent a reporter to Eureka last week for an interview. (Okay, she happened to be driving through anyway on her way to someplace else.  The point is, we're just happy to be on the way to somewhere.) Here's the story–scroll down about halfway–and if you're local, know that the […]


A Humboldt County Story

Not book related, but Dan Barry's story about Humboldt Creamery for the New York Times may be the best story I've ever read about life here in Humboldt County.
