Old Inlet Bookshop

The Shop

The Old Inlet Bookshop is a family owned bookshop of third-generation booksellers. We offer used, rare and out-of-print books, and have been operating in Homer since 1997.

The bookshop specializes in Alaskana, polar exploration, natural history, modern firsts, children's and medical books. We also offer a wide array of general stock in most genres.

The Books

Of the 20,000-plus titles available for perusal, one might find a signed Rockwell Kent illustrated first edition Moby Dick in a dust jacket, or a John Muir Cruise of the Corwin with a manuscript tipped into it. There is the possibility of securing a paperback of a favorite fiction writer, or a naval text detailing all the major submarine battles of World War 11.

Did we mention we have a cafe?
