Seriously, the COOLEST independent bookstore...they have an excellent book selection, unique knick knacks, fun toys for kids, and regular book signings as well. Looks small from the outside but when you step in the space really open up. Great location in La Jolla too. It's awesome to see such a one-of-a-kind bookstore thrive in a time where you don't see much of that anymore.

I love Warwick's! Come and experience an old school, small-town book store with a gift shop attached...before they're all gone! Great selection, helpful staff...all in beautiful downtown La Jolla. A little slice of old downtown Americana not to be skipped!

I have always heard of Warwick's book store. They host a variety of authors' book signings. This was my first trip there. I would love to have perused the whole place, but they were actually closed for the book signing event. I have to say, though, that I wonder how they accommodate bigger crowds for more popular authors. The place was packed - standing room only - and this was for a lesser known author. Also, I thought their sound system could have been better.

As my boyfriend put it: "It looks like a 711 from the outside, but then inside it's like a f$*#in Vons!" Indeed, Warwick's has a cleverly misleading shopfront, but the inside hides away books, trinkets, gifts, and toys -- a lovely throwback to "old times." I love the eclectic, modern decor and funky wall decorations. It's also very popular for author signings, and famous in the area - we got to attend Nomadic Matt's book signing and travel talk here, which was great!

Attended a talk with Nomadic Matt's Matt Kepnes. Awesome location and great bookstore. Met a lot of world travelers as well and got to exchange and share ideas on travel.

Boutique book, stationary, office supply store located in the heart of La Jolla Village. This place is a staple for local and up and coming authors to do tours, talks, signings, etc. many authors have grown their following and launched their name/brand at Warwicks. Looking for a hard to find book/author? Try Warwicks.. Call forst and they can usually find and order it for you. Check out their weekly events! Pricing is reasonable and parking is street parking nearby in the Village. This place is a local gem!

Great spot for authors! I have a client there that will definitely come in and do a signing. Come in for cute little gifts or good books. Not many bookstores still exists, but this is a great one.
