Gene's now has 2 locations. Near each other almost across the street. Old location still has world class selection of mysteries and I must say, much better organized. New location is beautiful, well organized and much larger. It has books on presidents, American history, WW2 and others, and many more subjects. This location also has young adults and children books. Love this bookstore.

There are a lot of mystery and fiction books here. The question is not do they have your book, but rather can you find it. I'm pretty sure small children and grandparents get lost in here on a weekly basis trying to navigate the stacks. Remember, if you get lost the best thing to do is stay in one place and call out for help. Do not try to find you way back to the front of the store. Chairs are strategically placed throughout the store for you to sit and wait for help to arrive.

We've all read a book where they talk about a magical bookstore that you wish truly existed. Well, of you want to go to a magical bookstore like no other, Gene's Books will make all your reading and book buying dreams come true. This particular location, their main shop, is full of fiction novels and mystery books from around the world. I've never seen anything like it! I was in aww as I walked through the shop, which seemed to never end with all it's nooks and crannies, and winding walls of shelves. The staff was friendly and welcoming, explaining the store, what they had to offer, and to check out their new store across the street for other kinds of reads. A must visit shop on Sanibel!
