Santa said Eureka Books is his favorite shop in Old Town, but he probably says that to all the store owners.


Hello Norma Jean

Marilyn-Monroe-photo2 We just got in a huge collection of Marilyn Monroe books recently purchased from a private collector.  Our shelves are bursting with multiple copies of possibly every book ever published about the famous and tragic Hollywood star. So if you know any gentlemen who prefer blondes, or anyone who likes it hot, send them our way.  Don’t bother to knock, just come on in!

The collection also includes many books on fashion and photography.

Banned from the Anarchist Bookfair!

November 11th, 2010  |  by  |  published in Book Fairs

It turns out that being an independent bookstore in Eureka for 23 years isn't good enough for Humboldt's anarchists. Since we have employees – who by definition are exploited wage slaves – we are banned from the Third Annual fair on December 11 show at the Manila Community Center.

Anarchists: don't bother asking us for a donation again this year.


From old books to new journals

Blank-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.

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 read? I love this glass lantern slide (up for auction at emovieposters.com), which theater owners would have shown on the screen before the film reminding people not to read the title cards aloud.

Here are a few other classics from the silent movie era
