Truckee Book & Bean
This bookstore is housed in an historic old building that was built somewhere between the late 1800s and the early 1900s. The building once served as a saloon for the area town folk. The store sells new and used books and features a large selection of audio tapes for those who enjoy listening to a good book. It's a fun place to browse and you'll surely find a good read or two. If you like local history, there are books on the gold rush and Nevada/California history. Don't miss this friendly little shop located in the historic town of Truckee.
My first impression upon entering the store was that this bookstore had the feel of a local coffeehouse but without the bustling crowds. Upon closer inspection, there was a whimsical logic to the placement of titles (with a compliment of used titles as their topics were thrusted into the limelight again by current events.) Another section was rich with the Lake Tahoe area history and folklore covering early settlement, recreation, and development from railroads, timber, and tourism into the recreation jewel it is today. The staff were quite knowledgeable of their collection and were able to special order any title that was not immediately in stock. Not being a coffee drinker, I was quite satisfied with a hot chocolate made with steamed milk from the coffee bar.
