Welcome to the Edmonds Bookshop Web site.

Welcome to The Edmonds Bookshop!


Located in the heart of downtown Edmonds, Washington, we are full of books you really want to read!

January 2017

With apologies, below are some great places to find new books to add to your 'need to read' list.
Apologies, because... we know.
We know that the stack by your bed is only slightly bigger than the stack in your living room.
And we know that the stack in your living room is bigger than the stack in your office, but only sometimes.
And somedays you just really need to re-arrange the stacks, because, yikes!

You are totally one of us.

President Barack Obama’s Secret to Surviving the White House Years: Books!
Not since Lincoln has there been a president as fundamentally shaped — in his life, convictions and outlook on the world — by reading and writing as Barack Obama. The New York Times article here. And President Obama's reading list here.



A great resource to add to your list: An interactive guide to The Seattle Times' best books recommendations from the past few years. Here. Such a great list, and really fun to explore. You can choose a category, whatever you may feel like reading right now, and get fantastic recommendations.



What were the best books of 2016? Here are a few sources with their great lists:

  • Jeffrey Brown recently sat down with best-selling authors Jacqueline Woodson and Daniel Pink to discuss their picks. The PBSNewshour.
  • Seattle Times book reviewers share their fiction and nonfiction favorites from the year, from the challenging to the sublime. Column/list here.
  • The 10 Best Books of 2016. The year’s best books, selected by the editors of The New York Times Book Review. Column here.
  • Bill Gates’ favorite books of 2016. Our neighbor in Medina is an avid reader, and he doesn’t flinch from a challenging book. The list here.


And add these interesting places to your list of resources to look to for recommendations:

  • wellread.org. Great in-depth interviews and additional reading lists offered from Mary Ann Gwinn.
    For example, Maria Semple was the featured guest a couple of months ago: the interview here.
    She started out in the writers rooms of some of Hollywood’s wittiest programs.  As a novelist… she is beloved by fans as much for her characters as her clever banter and cutting humor. The related reading list from Mary Ann Gwinn here.
  • Bill Gates. Regularly reviews books he likes on his blog. Link to his book review page here.
  • NPR book list. Lots of interesting books and author interviews here.
  • New York Times Book Review. New reviews every week. www.nytimes.com/section/books/review
