A visit to the western-most bookstore in the United States

Talk Story bookstore is in the sleepy little town of Hanapepe, Kaua'i in Hawaii. Carla and I visited it last week and loved everything about it, including its owners, Cynthia and Ed Justus, who were really friendly and helpful. Cynthia tracked down every magic trick book in the store for me!

The bookstore is in a former food and clothes store built in the 1930s called the Yoshiura Market. It's been converted to a clean, bright, and well-organized store with over 100,000 used and new books.






To see another unusual bookstore, read my post about Reader's Oasis in Quartzsite, Arizona.
