Elliott Bay Bookstore

Books to me are like candy to a child. When in a bookstore, I want to buy everything!

I really liked the very old Elliott Bay Book Company store in Pioneer Square. I remember reading the recommendations written on flash cards, asking for help to find a book that my kids would devour or one that would be accessible to me and my poor English back then.

When in 2010, Elliott Bay left Pioneer Square to move to Capitol Hill, I thought it would not be the same. I thought it would be modern, cold, and lacking a soul, but I was wrong. I like to go, wander, sit, have a coffee at the 10th avenue “new” store… and try to moderate my purchases…
