FOLLOWUP: Paper Boat Booksellers’ opening day

As previewed here two days ago, today is opening day for Paper Boat Booksellers (6040 CCalifornia SW) in Morgan Junction, so we stopped by for a look.

They’ll be open until 7 tonight. And on Friday night, their first author event:

Paper Boat is West Seattle’s first all-new-books independent bookstore since Square One closed nine years ago.

    Wonderful to see a real bookstore again.  I hope this is a trend, and that people will buy their books here instead of on Amazon.

    Beautiful shop, awesome book selection and sweet gifts too!  If you have not gone in yet – do so soon and bring your wallet and allow enough time for looking at everything- you will want to buy all the things!

    What a treasure this store is! I went after work on Thursday and the store was busy! They happily ordered a book for me. Went again today with a dear friend and fellow bookaholic and purchased two more books. This will surely become a loved community fixture.  Happy to support a local business.

    So glad to hear about you!  Will come check the new store out soon – live in Fauntleroy, just down from Morgan Junction.  Welcome!  I LOVE and miss bookstores!
