Stop by Sundog Books for Your Beach Read

\ Book Store Panama City FL

When you go on vacation, you want to sink into a comfy chair, maybe on a sandy, warm beach, and dive into a good book. But what if you forgot one?! You checked in your suitcase—not there. How about visiting Sundog Books in Seaside, FL, for an eclectic pick or New York Times bestseller?

The Sundog Also Rises

Book Store

In 1986, a couple of book lovers, Bob and Linda White, decided to translate their love of reading into a bookstore for readers like them. After observing friends in Mississippi successfully operating bookstores, they gave it the old college try and opened their one-of-a-kind shop Sundog Books. Over thirty years later, they’re still meeting locals and vacationers alike who want the perfect escape while on vacation or an afternoon getaway in their own home.

Nothing Like the Sundog Selection

Whether you’re a book fanatic or only read certain types of books, Sundog caters to readers who favor any available genre out there. They offer regional books and keep their shelves well-stocked with both mainstream and independent selections. They arrange their shelves in easy-to-find categories, but their staff, made up of family members and fellow book lovers, always jumps up to recommend a quick read or tome that envelops you in a good story.

In addition to books, they offer stationery items including regional postcards, magazines, and shirts and mugs emblazoned with their Sundog logo.   

Dogeared Afternoons and Evenings

Book Club

To cater to heavy-duty readers who want to get into rousing, book-centric conversations, the store sponsors two different book clubs for daytime bookworms and literature-loving night owls.

Along with bimonthly wellness programs, they regularly host book signings by famous Southern authors like romance novelist Mary Kay Andrews and any authors who want to meet their fans while promoting their books. Authors conduct book signings on their beach-weathered, cozy porch overlooking the street. The porch serves as a nice nook for lingering over a book after you make your purchases or chatting with a favorite writer.
