“An old-fashioned bookstore to browse away an hour or two...”
Reviewed 1 November 2013

This traditionally-styled bookstore is tucked away on the TOP floor & corner of downtown Kapa'a's historic Dragon building (so yes, u DO have 2 climb a steep-ish flight of stairs to get there!) overlooking the street and ABC store; predictably, it stocks many books about local culture and Kaua'i, but also has a primary inventory of second-hand books - no, NOT the now-customary romances & spy-thrillers = light-reading of airport bookstores, but 'real' bookshop stock! e.g. classic authors (Jane Austen, Jack London) and the classics (Shakespeare, Homer) - etc…but also a wide selection of Childrens' Books - both new, local and vintage. The no-pressure atmosphere and scattering of chairs ensures a pleasant time to browse there. Perfect place for a rainy afternoon! Open every day & early evening (if i remember reading the Hours on the door right…). Only 'complaint' is that they're still relatively new, so they haven't got gift-wrap or paper-bags with their logo in stock yet - clearly, a 'touch' which needs to be remedied immediately &/or ASAP, especially with the Holiday Season right around the corner.
