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. We can also ship books to your friends and relatives. 

Please note that our online store lists books that are available from our primary book distributor but may not be in stock in our physical shop. Feel free to call us to find out if it is on our shelves. Our website also includes books that are listed as 'Special Order - Subject to Availability' which may not be available unless we have a used copy in stock. Please call us to check the status of books with this note before you place your order. 


Thanks to Best of Virginia for naming Sundial as one of the top ten bookstores in the Commonwealth.
