Books and Latte in A Small Town in Southern Kauai

Ed (shown here) and Cynthia Justice run a great bookstore (with some 100,000 books in inventory, many of them used, in the small town of Hanapēpē.

How are you doing in this age of Amazon, I asked? Ed said their business has been growing each month, a 65% increase in the last 2 years. 80-85% of their sales are used books,and many of these sales come via Amazon.

There's also a v. cool coffee shop in Hanapēpē, opens at 6 AM.

Books and coffee, 2 of the staples of life…
