About Us

Crown Books is a retailer of new and used books in San Diego, California. When the original Crown Books went out of business more than 20 years ago, we purchased the company and launched it as a bargain bookstore in 1995. After converting many locations to offer Halloween costume sales, we opened four Crown Books locations and one Book Heaven, where every book is $1.

As a family-owned business, we offer a personal touch to all of our sales and transactions. If you need to make room on your bookshelf for new reads, sell your books to us at one of our locations and peruse the shelves for an exciting novel. Come explore our stores to find a wonderful selection of affordable books and a friendly and personal sales staff.


Thank you for your interest. Please reach out with questions or comments using the information below. We look forward to hearing from you.
