About Us

Welcome to the cyber-home of Earthlight Books.  We are a family owned and operated full-service bookstore with a storefront located in Walla Walla, Washington and our online warehouse located in Olympia, Washington. Since 1973 we have been filling the literary needs of this wonderful community in the Walla Walla Valley. Over the past 50 years our shop here has become a staple of this vibrant local economy, a beautiful downtown scene and an informed intelligentsia. We sell books through our storefront, this website, and a book-mobile that travels to festivals and fairs. We also sell through Alibris, ABE, Amazon, Ebay and several other online outlets through their third-party programs.

We specialize in Rare Books, Western Americana, Children’s Books, Fiction, Art, Vintage Paperbacks and Comic Books, Poetry, History, Literary Criticism, Medieval & Renaissance Studies, Political Science, ‘osophies, ‘ographies, and ‘ologies of all sorts, Philosophy, Religion, Erotica and Underground & Clandestine Books.

In 2002 we aided in the opening of Last Word Books, an independent bookstore in downtown Olympia, Washington. In 2005 we helped start Last Earth Distro, an underground book dealer specializing in bizarre, controversial literature. Now in 2010 we are abeting an underground printer and publisher: Last Word Press, in getting off the ground.

Please bear with us as we enter the 21st Century kicking and screaming. This website platform is new to us and we are still ironing out some kinks and assigning categories for our books. As it stands, only some of our inventory has been assigned categories, which means the bulk of our books are currently listed under 'Other' but are still searchable by title, author, keyword, etc. Also, it will take us awhile to get descriptions and pictures of our books uploaded, so feel free to write for more info on a particular title in the meantime.

We appreciate your business! Keep reading!
