Oakland, Berkeley, And East Bay News, Events, Restaurants, Music, & Arts
I seldom get past the remainder table!
They host readings, book releases, art openings, and my wedding!
I saw a lot of magazines in this store but nowhere near enough. Couldn't find the current affairs magazine "The Week" (http://theweek.com)
BOTH LOCATIONS, ON SOLANO AND ON SHATTUCK
The Alameda shop on Park Street has a great selection of greeting cards as well as books and other intelligent amusements. Low-key, friendly, airy ambience.
They have my favorite things. Books and cats.
Cutest. Bookstore. Ever.
This bookstore carries a lot more than Buddhist texts. They have a variety of books on meditation, yoga, healing, etc. Also, some wonderful children's books. They also have a selection of Tibetan art "thankas" on canvas and poster paper. There are numerous items from Nepal such as singing bowls, incense, and repousses. They also have many kinds & colors of meditation cushions. A wonderful trove of spiritual treasures.
This is an excellent bookstore. Jean and Daryl are very knowledgeable and helpful. I always find something at Bibliomania. Jean knows what I read and will e-mail me or tell me when we cross paths in the neighborhood about a book that might interest me. Bibliomania is conveniently located a block from the 19th Street BART station on Broadway, and there is plenty to do in the neighborhood, including the Fox Theater, Rudy's Can't Fail Cafe, and Fox Square Park. I highly recommend Bibliomania.
Fillmore, not MLK
Not really the best, but the only one still in business in West Contra Costa
I love the Alameda store!
Lefendary for a good reason. Staff, well balanced selections and decvent ownership.
The phone number is wrong, it is 510.788.5821. Also, it is NOT a "little" shop but the largest by space and titles on the Avenue and one of the largest used bookshops in the EAST BAY, COVERING ALL SUBJECTS. Also the web page is down now but will be back up soon.
You can see a short video of the shop at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8EC_WdLmMbc

5 yeas strong!
