Seaport Books is a proud member of the Pacific Northwest Booksellers Association.

WOW! We’re overjoyed to be celebrating our 6th Year! Warm thanks to our customers, collaborators and friends who support our efforts. It truly does take a village and we appreciate all of you.

While there’s really no substitution for being inside a bookstore, if you can’t make it in or prefer to order books online, you can support us by shopping here. Thank you!

Contact us with questions, special orders or to be added to our email list.

Take a peak inside … and come hook a book!
