The Works is still here- and thriving, thanks to it's commitment to customer service in the coffee shop and friendly, helpful staff in the bookstore. (Sorry, Leo.) They struggled with the proliferation of "BIG" stores, but if you can't find it at the Works, they will go far and wide to help their friendly customers! Selection in both Cafe and bookstore are quality; their Eco-friendly products and commitment to supporting local artists makes them #1 in my book!

Employees at The Works are unfriendly,the selection is poor,and the store is aimed to serve Pacific Grove teachers who are too lazy to drive to Borders or buy online from Barnes & Noble or Borders. If you want to buy from a local bookstore,you should check out Bookshop Santa Cruz,as well as their website(www.bookshopsantacruz.com)-it's worth it if you prefer local stores. The Works will close within the next six months. Barnes & Noble Rules and The Works drools!

Called BookWorks under the previous owner, the renovated store now caters mostly to latte and muffin set, with over the half the floorspace now dedicated to light food and beverage service. This is too bad, since PG lacks a good new-book retailer. However, bookseller operations are handled by the former manager of the famed Thunderbird Bookstore in Carmel Valley, so the quality of stock is high and numerous author events are planned. Keep your eye on this one.
