About Us

 Welcome to Queen Anne Book Company

Our story:

Welcome and thank you for visiting our website, which is part of our bookstore in the center of Seattle’s Queen Anne neighborhood. We opened Queen Anne Book Company on March 1st, 2013, following the closure of the previous bookstore that had been here since the late 1980s.

Please look around on our website, and if you can't remember the exact title or author of "that" book you've been wanting to read, we are here to help you. And please come visit us at our shop, a warm, cozy hangout, with treasures to be found on every shelf, for every person.

Our team:

We are all passionate about books, and love our neighborhood and community. We love to share our knowledge and are happy to help you find the book you want and need, anytime. There is no greater reward for us than to see your smile when "that" book is found.
