I love Marcus Books! I can get lost in there for hours. The best part is that is not only allowed, it's embraced. The staff at Marcus truly understand those of us that are enchanted by the world of bo...oks. If they don't have it, I don't need it. See More

This store is amazing - a nicely-curated selection of books by and about persons of color that span genres as well as points in time. We went there to find two books my college kid needed for a Harle...m Renaissance class (which were NOT stocked at two other more mainsyream bookstores but really should have been!) and came away with (in addition to the books she needed) 2 graphic novels, one historical/political analysis, one ADORABLE children's book and some refrigerator magnets! Hands down, our new favorite book store! See More

If you want to learn the absolute truths and not that water down, sweep underneath the rug, fabricated history of our people; then look no further then Marcus Bookstore. Support black own businesses a...nd support a pillar in the Oakland community for 57+ years. Been woke for 57 years! See More

My favorite book source and the most knowledgeable staff in the Bay!!! I check them before any other. Highly recommended.

History speaks for itself! Mathematics, rightly viewed, possesses not only truth but supreme beauty-- cold and austere, like that of sculpture. Agreed a nicely curated selection of books that span ge...nres as well as points in time. See More
