My family went to Hanapepe to walk around a small Kauai town on a Friday, right before the Friday Night art walk. This is a great, cute independent bookstore, with a lot of books on Hawaii, Hawaiin culture, history, etc, in addition to non-Hawaii books. I have been to the popular and very Manhattan Strand Book store, and this (also)... 更多
If you love books, you don't want to miss a stop here. There's a shop cat, the owners are super friendly, there are new and used books, the lay-out is great and it smells like a book store!
This is the best side of Hanapepe. You have the best gallery and the coolest bookstore across the street from each other. The couple that run the book store were awesome to talk with and they recommended some perfect beach reading books! This town has personality!
After returning from a boat tour in Port Allen, I drove to Hanapepe to check out the Talk Story bookstore. They have a good selection of books of all genres, including books about Hawaii, and the shop cat even made an appearance! Also a quick walk to the swinging bridge that crosses the Hanapepe river.
12 years in the making and it's wonderful! The wide variety of used and new books is amazing. Hawaiiana, historical, children's, cooking and you may get lucky and find a long lost treasure. Owners Ed & Cynthia Justus or the staff will welcome you with Aloha or maybe a hug if you've been stopping in over the years. Friday night... 更多
This book store is very comprehensive with many up-to-date-titles over many subjects. It is well organized and the staff are friendly and helpful.

This bookstore is a throwback to the times before the chains and Amazon - most such places have closed; this gem of a place seems vibrant. A place where you can ask... 更多
proclaims the sign on the eaves of the Talk Story bookstore. We stopped here to get a couple of chapter books on Hawaii for our granddaughter. Along with the books we also came away with a few good recommendations on restaurants (both local and Lihue). Very friendly and helpful. Great selection of books.
Visited the Talk Story Bookstore, as we do every trip to Kauai. Great selection of books, especially local Hawaiian books for both adults and kids. Books are very organized. All that is missing is the ALOHA SPIRIT. I was once again disappointed that this bookstore is different than most places on Kauai, where they treat you with respect. If your... 更多
