Welcome to the Rebound Bookstore
The Rebound Bookstore is located in a popular strolling area of coffee houses, bagel shops, antique and music stores, galleries and specialty shops, at 1611 4th Street in San Rafael, California, a comfortable village on the bay, just a few minutes north of the Golden Gate Bridge off highway 101 and light-years away from mall culture. It is near the land of California gold, Sir Francis Drake’s landing, Mark Twain, Dashell Hammet, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Kerouac, Ken Kesey, and George Lucas’ Dream Works Studio. The area is home to two National poet laureattes (former national Poet Laureate Robert Hass, and current poet Kaye Ryan.) Its an area with more poets, playwrights, novelists, scientists, analysts and ism-makers, modern and post- than you can stuff into a corner coffee house.
As you can see we are also right in your own home, studio, or office. Writers and rock stars, punks and professors, poets and pundits as well as the modern word pirates and media speakers of the 21st century are found in and around our store. And now you are here with us.
The Rebound Bookstore caters to both the traditional and the quirky reader with over 35,000 books, records, CD’s, and DVD’s in every genre. We boast large current and classic fiction and mysteries as well as a sci-fi collection of over 2000 books. We carry gift cards by local artists. The story swarms with local families digging into the kid’s section on Saturdays’. We even keep a large stock of romances for those cold rainy nights or slow dreamy Sundays.
Small, rich special collections are nestled throughout the store. Such things as novels by middle eastern writers, odd dictionaries, romances Westerns, foreign language books, UFO books, Hardy Boys sets, a box full of Conan novels, Ring-bound cook books from obscure church groups, and how-to-do-it manuals on gardening and house repair are gathered in nooks and crannies.
The Rebound Bookstore is your point of departure for new ideas, unexpected adventure, and treasures found.
