Calling All Avid Readers! Discover Book Stores and Clubs Near You!

If you consider yourself a book lover, you might have missed going to your regular book club meetings during the height of the pandemic. While there is more time to cuddle up and enjoy your favorite novel or attend a Zoom meet-up, many people find that it’s just not the same as being able to meet face-to-face with other book enthusiasts and enjoy them together. Perhaps you are just simply looking for a new bookstore in the area to visit. Whatever your case may be, if you’re a bookworm looking for some new things to do in Orange County, then OC Helper has got you covered today!


Bookman (Orange)

Visitors have dubbed this store a “treasury for books.” For more than 3 decades, this independent bookstore has served as a local favorite among local bibliophiles. You will find yourself feeling like you’ve stepped into the Hogwarts library with their extensive library. You can also do an advanced search on their website to see if they have the book you’re looking for in stock. 

Arvida Book Co. (Tustin)

This store recently opened its doors in the fall of 2020. The store has been praised for its cute chic aesthetics. This is a great spot to bundle up and enjoy a good read with a cup of coffee on your days off.

Book Carnival (Orange)

This store specializes in mystery books. Its owner, Anne, is recognized by her friendly smile and aura as well as her unmatched knowledge of the world of literature. If you can’t find something you’re looking for, she is more than happy to order it for you. Book Carnival also holds frequent author book signings!

One Dollar Bookstore (Orange)

Books are for everyone, so if you find yourself in need of a good new read but you don’t want to spend a lot of money, then this is your place. Many local residents have raved online about the unbeatable prices they’ve gotten on their new stack of books.

Book Clubs

Irvine Non-Fiction Book Club

Founded in 2015, this club meets once a month and is geared towards reading books “pertinent to our country and the world at large.” If you live near Irvine and you enjoy reading about politics, world events, and having civil debates with others pertaining to these topics, we think you’ll fit in quite well here. 

OC Personal Development Book Club (Irvine)

If you are interested in self-help and improvement books and sharing your journey among others, then you may find this group to be a good investment of your time. Members read a new personal development book each month and meet to discuss their thoughts on them. You may find yourself not only learning a lot about others and their own experiences but some things about yourself you didn’t realize before!

Silent Book Club – Orange County 

Did you like silent reading time back in grade school? Want to be able to actually do the reading with your group then discuss the material shortly after? If this sounds like you, then come on over to the Silent Book Club! You are also welcome to bring a reading buddy along with you!

When it comes to things to do in Orange County, there is no shortage of fun!
