Happy March! March is home to Dr. Seuss’s Birthday and Read Across America Day (both March 2!), and the whole month is National Reading Month. So to start the month off right, I’ve put together a list of fun little book shops in Oak Harbor and Coupeville for all you book lovers!
- The Book Rack (Oak Harbor)
The Book Rack: Books, Comics, and Games is your one-stop shop for everything… well… books, comics, or games related! They have a great selection of bestsellers, a really fun kids section, diverse teen and young adult picks, and all the normal categories we’ve come to expect from book stores. Anything they don’t have, that you’re looking for, they can usually order for you!
They also have a wide variety of games, art supplies, coloring books, miniatures and miniature painting supplies, dice and dice accessories, trading cards, and more!
