Welcome to Owl & Company Bookshop

We are a real bookshop located at 3941 Piedmont Avenue in Oakland, California. We are open Sunday-Thursday 11AM-8PM and Friday & Saturday 11AM-9PM.

We offer thousands of quality secondhand books on all subjects, from antiquarian, vintage and rare, to recent publications -- and all at Internet-competitive prices.

This website lists nearly 12,000 titles from our warehouse, most of which have not been photographed. Should you find material here that you wish to examine, please send us an email or give us a call. We can usually bring the items to the shop within 24-48 hours. And, of course, feel free to place an order here! We can either ship your books or deliver them to the shop for pick-up. Please note that the books at the shop are not listed on this website, and that trade slips are not applicable to books on the website or in the shop's glass case.

Our neighborhood of Piedmont Avenue is home to four independent secondhand bookstores, all within four blocks of each other: Black Swan Books, Book Zoo, Spectator Books and Owl & Company Bookshop. Also on the avenue is the magazine shop Issues as well as Dr. Comics & Mr. Games. Such an uncommon concentration of printed matter makes Piedmont Avenue an exciting destination for readers and booklovers the world over.
