"Happy 50th Birthday, Bookshop Santa Cruz! I first met you when you were only 27. You've grown into such a wise elder but have never lost your youthful joy. I look forward to visiting you when you turn 75, but I don't think I'll make the 100th birthday!" —Sherman Alexie, best-selling author


"Ever since I was young I have haunted bookstores; the ability to get lost in my thoughts and interests happens easily, whether I am looking for specific titles or subjects or, even better, stumbling onto something new. Bookshop Santa Cruz is everything I look for: independently owned, with a dedicated and helpful staff and a selection that is both provacative and complete. It helps that it is a short and gorgeous walk from my home, and it is one of the reasons I am grateful and feel blessed that I have made Santa Cruz my home."  —David Kinch, Michelin-starred chef, Manresa


"Congratulations! It's hard to believe that Bookshop has reached middle age. To me it always seems young and hip, full of unbounded energy and curisoity. Well, go figure! I was 50 when I visited the store for the first time and since then a lot has happened in my life and certainly in Bookshop's. I hope that we will continue to grow together into old age."  —Isabel Allende, best-selling author
