...Voted Best Used Bookstore in Marin County
Rebound bookstore has been consistently voted "Best Used Bookstore," in Marin County by the Bohemian weekly's customer survey in every year we have entered the survey ( 2005, 2009, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 & 2015)
On Saturdays and weekday lunchtimes, the store swarms with students from local high schools and colleges.
As often as not the store is full of teens from the local high school from the next block over.
If you have a question about a specific book, write or call us. If we don’t have it, we’ll order it for you.
The San Francisco Chronicle said, “The Rebound bookstore, with a diverse selection of used books to pique your interest is the kind of cozy convivial place that makes you want to linger.”

What Makes Us Worth The Trip
The Rebound Bookstore at 1611 4th Street in San Rafael, California, is nestled in a safe, popular, strolling area of coffee houses, restaurants, and specialty shops, with easy-to-find parking.
Among the thirty-five thousand items in the store, we carry such unique collections as novels by middle eastern writers, odd dictionaries, romances, westerns, foreign language books, UFO books, Hardy Boys, Conan novels, English “cozy” mysteries, ring-bound cook books from obscure church groups; even a collection of Flemish comic books (!)
They’re all tucked away in little alcoves around the store along with such staples as manuals on gardening and house repair. We boast both current and classic fiction and mysteries as well as a sci-fi collection of over 2000 books.
We foreground a well-stocked bookcase of local writers. Proceeds from the sale of their books goes directly to the writers.
We carry gift cards by local artists.
