🌱 πŸ’― πŸ€— When the local bookstore has a book on the exact topic you’re looking for πŸ€— πŸ’― 🌱  And a bonus pick-up by Robert Louis Stevenson. πŸ‘πŸ»
Back here picking up new old reads πŸ“š #independentbookstores
originally published in 1945 | extended birthday gift from @che.art.life πŸ“š
Bought a bunch of books to prepare for winter and the first one I looked at had this quote on the first page ❀️ It makes sense I connect to Shia Islam more than Sunni Islam. #shia #shiite #bibifatima #tattooedhijabiwanderer #preparingforwinter #womenempowerment  @tattooed_hijabi_wanderer
My little book worm 😍❀️ our beach vacation might be over but we’re still having fun πŸ˜ƒ #toddler #love #books
Z booked it to Oakland with @theworldandmyunibrow and @jennyfr0mtheflock
Spark a memory?
Don’t tell @i_am_the_maximus that I stopped by my favorite indie bookstore @waldenpondbooks .  I only spent a $100 so I should be rewarded with beer and tofu later. #books #booksandbeer #ihaveaillnessimnottryingtocure #oakland #readdontbreed #jiatolentino

For the love of books #waldenpondbooksoakland
excited for this one !!! @jiatortellini writes like no one else... and on top of that has been so incredibly generous in her support of my own book. I was supposed to do work today but will probably just read this instead 🧑
Down the street from Grand Theater in #oakland you will find Walden Pond Bookstore! @waldenpondbooks  Setting out the new issue - Intervews with William Gibson & Lesley Nneka Arimah!  #usedbookstore #newstand #newsmagazine #newbooks #localbookstore #locallyowned #neighborhoodwalk #neighborhood #grandtheatre #sciencefiction
Soooo much gold in this bookstore! Was helping a friend out in Oakland but needed to stop off to use the bathroom somewhere along Grand Ave after sitting in Bay Bridge traffic. Found this treasure chest and ended leaving with all these. Shoutout to @dara12m for the reccomendation on "5 Dysfunctions of a Team". And shoutout to the awesome staff at @waldenpondbooks. My hands are full for the next couple months πŸ“šπŸ™
I talked Chris who did the work.  He’s trying to help other businesses with their signs that need refreshing!  Perks up the neighborhood. Go Chris!!
I hadn’t seen this book in the wild yet! It sent a jolt through my belly. What an honor to have been in it! #modernaframebook @modernaframe
I came here with a purpose to get one book I had ordered, but naturally others managed to find me, too.  What is it about big old used book stores? Whether I go in with an intention or not, there’s always something—or more often, somethings— I didn’t know I needed to explore, that perfectly match my present states of mind. πŸ“šπŸ˜Š #usedbooks #buybooks #independentbookstores
still thinking about this dreamland
Because I have a voracious appetite for learning more. Thrilled to find a used copy of Drawing Down the Moon. Along with The Fuck it Diet @thefuckitdiet. #neopaganism #witchstudies #fuckitdiet #alwayslearning #ilovereading
A visit to Walden Pond Books (@waldenpondbooks) in Oakland and to Ordinaire (@ordinairewine) natural wine shop, down the block. My buddy bought me a beautiful edition of The Master and Margarita, then we grabbed a drink and played rummy.

What is your go to Book Store? That place that whenever you are on the area you know you will be stopping by. Even if it is only to ‘take a look’, only window shopping. . This Store in Oakland is located in Grand Avenue. The little walk from The Grand Lake Theater, passing the numerous little local businesses, until you find the book store, gives you peace! . Very cute spot, with great deals! . What is your spot? βœ¨πŸ“–

Happy times at Walden Pond Books on a warm Friday evening in Oakland, browsing with boy, and Miles Davis’s Kind of Blue comes on just as I see @praddenkeefe ’s Orwell Prize winning book #saynothing standing front and center in the store, right where it belongs.

Book shopping is the best. Thank you Walden Pond Books.

you can find me in the used mystery section x
Unexpectedly found a wonderful bookstore in Oakland, CA, after taking my boys to a movie at @grandlaketheater after visiting @oaklandtemple open house. @waldenpondbooks had new and used books and magical stacks. I got myself a YA book #cinder that has been recommended to me several times: only $4! My boys browsed then sat and read, just like Mom. ❀️ bookstores!! . #bookstoresofinstagram #usedbookstore #waldenpondbooks #momswhoread #kidswhoread #oaklandca #bookstagram #bookclubofinstagram #cinder #marissameyer #booksofinstagram
Rest yer bones, read some books
