Yes, we are open--you can come in the store--do don your mask to come and see us. There's hand sanitizer at the door and remember to stay six feet apart while browsing. The latest shut-downs from the governor did not include retail stores unless they are located in a mall. Here we are on East Napa Street, freestanding, and ready to help you find your next best read. Store hours are 9:30 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday, on Sunday we still open at 9:30 but close at 3:30 p.m.

We are still able to provide contact-less pick-up in the garden if you are not comfortable coming inside the store. Phone us at (707) 939-1779 and we will have your order bagged and ready on the table in the backyard.

Our website is always open, as is our account at

Looking forward to seeing (or hearing!) from you soon.

We're so excited about our own Andy's new book, Reason to Kill and we've come up with some good, healthy, and safe ways to celebrate it.

Reason to Kill is the second Amos Parisman murder mystery; this time, the intrepid semi-retired gum-shoe finds himself embroiled in the world of LA's klezmer scene. Check out the recording of the webinar talk and watch Andy read from the book, explain his writing process, and answer questions from the (virtual) audience. Then come by (or give us a call) to get the book...and, if you need to catch up, pick up your copy of An Old Man's Game in order to get ready for Reason to KillI

Lilla Gilbrech Weinberger Obituary

Lilla Gilbrech Weinberger, beloved Sonoma bookseller and political organizer, died suddenly and unexpectedly, Sunday, March 24th, following a tragic fall down a flight of stairs.That was how it ended. But that one sentence doesn’t begin to encompass her life. 

Born in Pasadena, California, on October 8, 1941, she grew up in a mixed-raced, working class neighborhood. Her father was an engineer who spent the bulk of his career in aero-space and her mother was a skilled gardener and seamstress.
