Updates

Bet you've wondered what I've been up to recently? I have been working on the new space we opened last year at Wilson's Antiques East Bay, in Acme. I just moved in a huge new showcase you will have to see, full of rare and collectible books.

On this day in 1955 Customs Agents seized copies of Allen Ginsberg's "Howl". It would lead to a groundbreaking censorship court case. So be a rebel and read some Ginsberg today!

Have you ever heard anyone say, "I love books, but I just don't have any more space for them?" At Landmark Books we say, you're not trying hard enough.

As summer draws closer, have you begun thinking about your summer reading list? If you haven't we can help today!

Are your shelves half full or half empty? I have to agree with Darth, they need more books. Come and visit Landmark Books today!

The Groundhog has predicted six more weeks of winter, which means more time to read. We are open for your book reading and collecting needs.

Stopped in to get some advice on old books. Paul is a treasure. He willingly shares his knowledge and takes the time to educate his customers and what might have value and why. While most of my books were worthless I throughly enjoyed the visit and will be going back many times. What started out as another task going through family stuff turned into an insightful and very pleasant visit. An unexpected delight.

This is a great shop jam-packed with neat and unique books. Some real cool first edition and older books along with newer things. We ended up spending a long time just browsing and found some nice books to bring home.

I love this store. Browsing results in finding treasures every time. Plus, the atmosphere of the entire building - an old asylum - is so interesting. Paul, the owner of Landmark Books, is a wealth of reading information. I never miss stopping by every summer when I'm in the area.
