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.
