Welcome to Sundial Books


 Sundial Books, your independent, locally owned bookstore on Chincoteague Island, is celebrating its 10th season in business!  Thanks to artist and good friend Erick Sahler for designing a great print to commemorate this milestone. 

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.


Please note: If you are purchasing books through our online store, the books listed for sale online are not all in stock in our brick and morter store. Many titles are shipped directly from our book distributor.  Any books with the note 'Special Order - Subject to Availability' are likely out of stock at the publisher or out of print. We encourage you to check with us about the actual availabilty in our shop before placing an order for a book with this note. 



Thanks to Best of Virginia for naming Sundial as one of the top ten bookstores in the Commonwealth (#5!!).
