I am the owner of The Little Point Bookshop in PPB.The Little Point Bookshop was established in 2019, we have really loved sharing our love of reading and books with the community! We are small, but have something for everyone, and can help all customers discover their next favorite book. We host private books clubs, we have a brand-new podcast where we discuss books that have made a difference in our lives, and we can even host literary themed birthday parties! We want not only to be a business in the town, but we want to be part of the town: a place where locals and summer visitors will want to return too often.
How has this community been instrumental in getting you to where you are now?
Point Pleasant Beach has been a wonderful community to have a bookshop in- the customers have inspired me to keep going. Such a supportive community, with the best readers. Especially during COVID.
