Our Bookstore is Back-Books on B

This is a happy post. Last Friday, Books on B opened up in my town of Hayward, Ca. Our independent bookstore in Downtown Hayward is back. We used to have The Book Shop which served downtown for over 55 years. Sadly in February it closed but longtime Book Shop employee Renee Rettig took it upon on herself to keep the legacy of an independent bookstore in Downtown Hayward and worked hard to open Books on B (It is on B St). It was a great grand opening with politicians, people dressed up, wine and music:

It is so cool that we have our independent bookstore back in Downtown Hayward. I know I will support and I have already made a purchase there.


  1. How wonderful! That would have been a very sad day when The Book Shop closed. I'm so glad that the former employee was able to open another shop. Independent bookstores are an endangered species.

  2. Hooray for books and for bookstores everywhere!

  3. Anytime an independent book store opens (or re-opens) it's a cause for victory, joy and celebration these days.

    Congrats and thanks for sharing this wonderful news with us at The Book Nook at Create With Joy! :-)

  4. Oh, I love a new book store!!! Thanks for sharing this with us at Booknificent Thursday at!
