Books by the bay have friendly staff but they don't interfere with brosing. You can find good summer reads in the used section and grateful new baby books for showers.

Books by The Bay is hanging on as a community gathering place, and an alternative to the Big Box. Service and selection- if they don't have it in stock, it will be in by Tuesday!

I always like to visit used bookstores, and since we were staying in the area, I thought I'd pop in. The store is located at the north end of North Bend, just south of where 101 becomes two 'one-way' roads as you go south. There...More

We saw the bookstore and had to go in. The variety of new and used books is a great find as well as fair prices. We purchased a used book as a gift for our parents and a cup of coffee. Good service and selections.
