Welcome to the Edmonds Bookshop Web site.
Located in the heart of downtown Edmonds, Washington, we are full of books you really want to read!
A great selection of books for people with all
kinds of different interests, including the latest in fiction, mystery, biography, and general nonfiction. We also have a great selection of kids' books from picture books to young adult and everything in between.
Happy Spring! We did it! We survived
winter. There have already been a couple of amazing full-on
sunny days. Fantastic! And, of course, the rain is definitely
warmer. I recommend celebrating with a new book!
