Ballast Book Company carries mostly new books but has a small inventory of used books. They coordinate with local businesses, such as Ashley's Pub and LoveCraft Brewery, to hold book clubs and meet-the-author events!
A full service, locally-owned and proudly independent bookstore located on Bainbridge Island, home to a large community of authors and discriminating readers. A short ferry ride from Seattle, they offer a broad selection of fine new & used books, and a full schedule of author readings & events.
Formerly known by locals as Mr. B's Bookery, in 2013 this bookstore became The Kingston Bookery! They have an ever-changing collection of books - fiction, History, SciFi, Cookbooks, Classics, Romance and sometimes a stack of old comics next the cash register!
