Outer Banks Bookstores

The Outer Banks is home to many proud bookworms, and the stores on the beach cater to their needs. Outer Banks bookstores can take the form of your typical independent bookstore, coffeehouses, gift shops, general stores, markets, consignment stores and more. Being on vacation, it’d be nice to enjoy a book or two between sunning on the beach and whiling away hours on a rainy day. Fortunately, you don’t have to look hard or long before you find somewhere that sells books. The towns from Corolla through Ocracoke have multiple stores that carry books. You can pick up a paperback while doing your grocery shopping, or you can spend the morning sipping coffee as you browse through an eclectic selection of new and used books. Many Outer Banks bookstores sell books by popular authors as well as local authors, so you can get a taste of local style and culture as a book takes you on an adventure. So start reading . . . through the below listing of Outer Banks book shops!
