We always shop here for beach reading material and greeting cards not found in your ordinary haunts. The staff is super helpful.

I don’t really buy paperback books, since I use a Kindle, BUT this was a really fun place to visit. It was a bit cramped, but since it’s one of the most popular attractions in Seaside, we expected that. Aside from books, they sold greeting...More

Wow. I love reading. All the time. Anywhere. But I forgot that people LOVE to read on the beach. Sundog Books was packed - with people AND books. Piles of books and so many people we could barely find our way out of the store...More

Great book store, they have a huge selection for what appears to be a small store from the outside. Super clean and super nice staff!

The town of Seaside is beautiful, but our favorite part of the trip was this hidden gem and the upstairs record store. My kids could not get over that there was a whole store dedicated to selling CDs and Records 🤣 A must visit!

I LOVE this place! Books galore downstairs. Music and fun gifts upstairs. So nostalgic and quaint! I could spend hours in this one store.

We go to Sundog every visit to 30A. It's a great place to get something to read on the beach. They have books for all ages and many that are specific to the area. If you're a book lover, I'd suggest stopping in.

We visited on a rainy day and the place was packed. Both of my children excitedly picked out a new book and the lady who checked us out made sure to bag each child’s book separately to make them feel special.

I adore this well stocked store better then anything. People are smart, know the stock, and are eager to give excellent advice. I always leave with a dozen new books to devour until my next trip to seaside. All ages are stocked. I LOVE THIS...More
