Word After Word Books (Truckee, CA)


High in the mountains in the Tahoe basin lies the quaint town of Truckee. With the Sierras in the background and a light touch of snow on the ground, my husband and I enjoy a last-minute outing to finish Christmas shopping last December. One stop on my schedule…Word After Word Books located in old town Truckee across from the railroad station. Upon asking 3 young ladies (keeping a close watch on the customer’s needs) what is unique about Word After Word Books, I was so happy to hear their positive and full of pride answers (a must in my world of customer service). Every book in the store has been read by at least one employee and the customer can count on an insight into the book and personal recommendations. Helping the customer find what they are looking for is paramount in this lovely and inviting shop.


As you enter the store to browse for the right book for your next adventure, your senses will be doubly excited as you catch the smell of something wonderful - CHOCOLATE! What a perfect pairing, a book from Word After Word Books and a chocolate treat from Sweets Homemade Candy.






What do you pair with a good book?
