Welcome to La Playa Books' Online Used and New Catalog!

Our whole brick and mortar store is now online. 

With over 10,000 books in store, and new arrivals being added daily, you can browse to your heart's content and never get bored.  We have another 20,000 books in our archives to add to our collection month by month.  Are you looking for a special rare book?  Try our pages on Abe and Biblio.com for our very best selection.

If you live in San Diego County, choose 'pick up' for free book pick up in store Tuesday through Sunday 10am-5pm.

If you have a gift card and a few titles in mind, search our online catalog and call or email us so we can use your gift card and have the books ready for you for pick up or mailing.

Can't find the book you want?  It happens!  Just call or email and we'll track it down for you.

Many sections in the store are NOT cataloged online, such as our vintage pulp fiction collection and our ephemera.  If you are looking for a specific book and you don’t see it online, please contact our store directly. Chances are we do have it somewhere!
