From military history to gripping mysteries, San Diego’s independently owned and operated bookstores offer a wide selection of new, used and rare books and magazines. Some serve coffee and snacks if you’d like to curl up and stay awhile, and at least one of them also has the added bonus of a few furry employees who wouldn’t mind a few pets. Here are seven of San Diego’s top bookstores.
Founded in 1990, Bay Books sits near the North Island Naval Air Station, Marine Corps Recruit Depot (MCRD), Marine Corps Air Station Miramar and the Naval Amphibious Base. As such, their already ample stock of books contains a large section on military history. They also offer gifts and a wide selection of magazines.
