about us
By The Book is an independent, family-owned bookstore serving Huntington Beach since 1996. We carry new releases and bestsellers across a variety of genres, as well as the classics. Kids? No problem! Check out the range of our children's section where you'll find everything from pop-up books to activity kits. Don't forget to check our weekly schedule for in-store activities and interactive reading room times. All donations from in-store activities go directly to the current store-chosen charity (charities change quarterly). For budding readers, check out our Bookworm Reward Program. Are you a teacher? Receive an automatic 15% off with proof your school ID as a thank you for shaping young minds. Looking for a title that we don't carry in-store? We place new orders once a week and are happy to special order for you at no additional cost. Need help finding a title? We're more than glad to help you track it down. If you're looking for ideas on what to read next, check out our suggestion board with recommendations from our employees.

Thank you for supporting your local bookstore!
