Our ROAR Book Drive continues! Now through the end of January, we are collecting new books for babies and toddlers participating in the UCSD High Risk Infant Follow-up Program
. We just had a visit from a physician who raved about this national initiative! When you donate a book, it will be presented to a little one at their check-up. Getting tots engaged in reading helps build social skills, motor coordination, grows brains and sparks joy. We are stocking a bevy of baby books, in English and Spanish, appropriate to begin a kid's book love journey.
Books & more, arriving daily!
This just in: a sweet line of Red Cap Cards, for the greeting card aficionado. We carry reading glasses! We carry buttons, stickers, rainbow flags and peace banners. We special order new books and used, hard-to-find books. Folks are trading in books all the time, and we're getting 'em into our online inventory
and onto the sales floor & stacks just as fast as our li'l typing fingers and dancing feet will allow. When you're looking for something special or making a date with someone special, please make Bluestocking Books your destination! We are here for you!
They are adorable of course, but did you know that baby books are building blocks of brain development? It's true - to grow at a healthy rate, babies require books & cuddly, being-read-to time! Every winter we collect books for the UCSD High Risk Infant Follow-Up Program via Reach Out and Read
. Little ones receive the gift of a book during pediatric check-ups for 2-3 years as their new parents learn how to utilize books to help their baby. These are kids at risk for neurological problems or developmental delays & really need some extra help. For many it's their first book. We have a selection of board books to engage & delight; you can bring in clean, nice books for the program or order the favorites for the next generation to love too! Collecting through January 2020!.

We are a "brick-n-mortar" REAL BOOKSHOP where magical life-changing books are discovered, toddlers squeal in delight at the sight of a book they recognize, old friends strolling together find common loves in literature & history, true loves meet and dogs sit politely for a treat. Yes, there are random philosophical quotes uttered aloud and books recommended by friends and strangers alike. We are community whether we know you or not, fellow reader and booklover: welcome to our tradition! Our street address has housed a bookstore since 1967; the 3rd owner & staff (for ~19 years now!) intend to carry on the full-service neighborhood bookshop customs as long as there is a demand. We stock mostly used books and order both new and used books -just inquire. We have regular deliveries for the classic reprints and new releases.
