We were founded in 1995 as Boomer’s Books by Lee and Jim Breeden, and renamed Blue Bicycle Books in April 2007 when local writer and longtime employee Jonathan Sanchez bought the store.

We have about 10 feet of storefront on King Street, belying a much longer (and a little wider) space, 172 feet long. We're the founders and home of YALLFest, the world's largest young adult book festival, and host the popular Write of Summer camp for kids, as well as an author luncheon series and many other events. But mostly we just like to be a really nice place to come and spend some time.
