  • The only bookstore on the island. Great selection easy reads, history, rare books, comics, new releases. Great people helpful and friendly. Go there and keep them open. 
  • What cool and quirky bookstore. Talk Story is locally owned and operated and filled to the roof. You could spend hours in here going through the endless bookcases and tables. A great place to get book...  read more »

  • Not only the Western most bookstore in the US, in my opinion one of the best bookstores anywhere in the US!!! Ed and Cynthia are great people who care about their books and their customers, many who become friends. A must see location when you visit Kaua`i!!
  • Farthest bookstore to the west in US. Lots of books and good people. Friendly spot to find more books for beach. They do have a buy back plan.
  • I wish this store was on the mainland because I would be here all the time. They have a large selection of books (old and new), vinyl records, comic books and even a copy of a Harry Potter book in some obscure Scandinavian language. The owners are always there when I visit and are very friendly. The store is also home to Celeste the cat.
  • Trading books is a complete rip off. Took in two brand new hard back best sellers and was offered $3 each for books that cost $27 each. Be advised that you will get ripped off if you trade your books.
  • Talk story is a wonderful, good old-style used bookstore. If it were in my town I'd be there every day to see what treasures they had unearthed. You don't have to be a bibliophile to enjoy talk story as the name say's it all...Talk story, and if you want you will get some great stories...enjoy, and Hanapepe town is NOT to be missed.
