Welcome to Sundial Books

Sundial Books is your independent, locally owned bookstore on Chincoteague Island.  Our shelves include an eclectic mix of new and used books, local favorites and unexpected treasures. We also have a great selection of gifts and local art as well as new and used music CD's. Stop in and browse! If the book is still in print but not on our shelves, we can order it for you. Our online store lists books that ship directly from our distributor to you but may not be in stock in our physical shop. Give us a call if you need to know if we have it in stock. 

Sundial Books is now on our winter schedule. The store is open Friday, Sunday, Monday 10:00am - 5:00pm; Saturday 10:00am - 6:00pm (closed Tuesday - Thursday). We have a great selection of used books this winter as well as selected new fiction and non-fiction. Keep in mind that you can order online if you're not on the Island and books will be delivered right to your door. Winter is a great time to curl up with a good book!
