D.G. Wills is truly a unique treasure tucked away in the heart of downtown La Jolla. Located at 7461 Girard Avenue, this bookstore stocks antique and gently used books - from novels to historical fiction to beloved classics, D.G. Wills has it all. What began with just a hammer, a saw, some friends, and a bit of lumber, in 1979 Wills himself began crafting his own bookshelves from scratch and stocking the shop with books he’d uncovered at neighborhood garage and estate sales. The bookstore quickly became a peaceful refuge for book lovers, intellectuals, and the local who was simply looking for a quiet place to read for a while. His dedication to knowledge has drawn scholars, literary critics, students, and professors from universities across the country. With authors like Plato, Shakespeare, Darwin, and the Bronte sisters, Wills is confident of both his unique niche in the book world and the place he maintains in the hearts of his clientele – the old, antique books you find in his shop won’t be found in big-box, corporate stores. D.G. Wills is open Monday-Saturday 10am-7pm; Sunday 11am-5pm
