Bookshelf is one of my favorite book stores. Their main location is at the corner of Donner Pass Road and Highway 89 in Truckee, CA. They also have locations in Tahoe City and Quincy.
The main location is called Bookshelf at Hooligan rocks because in the old days, the 601 Vigilante Committee used to tar and feather hooligans near by. The reason that they used Hooligan Rocks in the name is because they specialize in local area history books. But, these are not the only books that they carry.
This is such a great book store due to the fact that the staff there seems to have read every single book on the planet. Almost every single time I purchase a book there someone says, “oh, that is a great book!” Also, as soon as you walk in the door they are ready to point you in the right direction.
It’s a pretty small store, but they carry most of my favorite authors. If I do not find what I need, they can order it, no problem. I have ordered some very rare and fantastic books from Bookshelf.
Bookshelf also offers a membership. For a low annual fee, you receive 10% off every purchase, chances to get books before their release date, and invites to in-store book signings.
All in all, this is a wonderful place to grab some of your favorite books. You readers out there will not be disappointed, guaranteed!
