La Quinta CA
ARTICLE & PHOTOS BY LYNNE TUCKER
The Book Rack La Quinta – owned by Holly Escobedo – opened in 1997 – in business 23 years this year. Moved to a new, larger space in the same center – closer to Von’s about a year and a half ago.
There are over 40,000 books in the shop – primarily paperbacks divided into genres. The most popular genre is murder mysteries, followed by thrillers. Other genres include classics, non-fiction, biographies, young readers, romance, and best sellers. There is also a nice selection of books on tape/CD, some new books by local authors, puzzles, art books, and cookbooks. In addition, there is a sale cart of donated hardback books for $3.
They are not holding any special shop events currently but if folks like The Book Rack La Quinta on Facebook they do have free book giveaways regularly for followers of our page.
The Trade-In policy applies to paperback books only. They do accept hard back books in donation. The Book Rack sells for half off the list price and you can receive half of that amount in store credit to use towards your next book purchases. Any books purchased from the store are automatically accepted back for store credit so folks can keep reading.
Any books they can’t use for stock are donated to Shelter from the Storm and the USO. About once every three months the USO fills a shipping container of donated books and sends them to the troops overseas.
As of this past summer, The Book Rack La Quinta is the only remaining used bookstore in the valley.
