Beautiful shop, nice owner. I love book stores so anything that allows me to wonder around books I love. This bookstore is perfect. Set right next to a small sitting park next to the creek and in an old building from the gold rush era. Books stacked on beautiful shelves and tighly shelved so you wander through a wonderland of books and other sundries. Love it! The owner is really nice and helpful.

A great little independent bookstore selling both new and used titles. If I'm in the neighborhood I always stop by.

Perusing Harmony Books in Nevada City, CA is such a sweet experience! I was looking for a book on the Nisenan native to Nevada City, CA. Bookseller, Ben guided me toward a selection of books written by local authors. He recommended “Nevada City Nisenan” written by Tania C. Thorne, historian on the Nisenan Native Americans, the first peoples of Nevada City, CA. Ben’s personal touch and knowledge of the author made my experience exceptional! I absolutely love this bookstore!

I get books here all the time, if you want it Ben can get it. It's so truly nice to see businesses like this still exist. I much rather get something from a place like this as opposed to amazon.

I absolutely love Stacy and supporting her passion and wisdom in knowing what this community (and beyond) love.Her choice in books is impeccable and the kids section is the best I’ve EVER seen. And if for some small chance she doesn’t have what you’re looking for, she will have it there at the drop of a hat. I’ve been to a lot of book stores, in a lot of places and Harmony Books is my favorite. Thank you for being here!

Love the selection of books and I appreciate that the owner (Stacy) doesn't hover or interact with customers unless we have questions. She is personable if you want to interact, but when I go to a bookstore I want to browse and read. This is a wonderful local bookstore and if they don't have what you are looking for, it can be ordered. It's also been covid-safe, everyone always has masks on and a limited number of people are allowed to browse at any given time.

Fantastic independent book store! They have a great selection and if they don't have what you want, Stacy will order it for you- she's the best!

Amazing selection, packed to the brim with books and fast special orders. Owner knows the books like the back of her hand.

I like to support local bookstores, and have frequented this one often but I'm officially tired of it. Every time we walk in, no hello, no how can I help you, nothing. She'll finally take her nose out of a book (it actually is too cliche to be more interested in books than customers) to ring you up and get her money. But not even then do you get a hello. I REALLY want to help subsidize local stores and have no problem padding two or three dollars on each book to support local. But if you won't even say hi or thank you or anything other than â€œyou ready?â€ when I have my wallet open, then I'm just going to buy from Amazon.

What I've always found outstanding about the owner is that every time I or anyone else I've seen in there asks about a book or an author she knows right off the top of her head whether or not she has it, where it is in the (packed on every shelf) store, or if she can get it, how soon etc. I don't know how she does it, but you can really tell the care and experience that's put into this store. Yay for local, longtime serving the community, mom and pop shops standing tall. Thanks
