Location, location, location. Because of Newport Beach being so grand, the Forever 21 store at Fashion Island HAS to be the most attractive with the best selection of clothing- mainly for female categories (standard, plus size, sporting wear, etc) but also there is a great selection of males and children's wear.

Address: 343 Newport Center Drive

Newport Beach Library, Newport Beach, CA - Newport Beach

Newport Beach Library, Newport Beach, CA

Bookstore at Newport Beach Library: Get cheap, well-kept books in posh Newport!

For the ultimate bookworm, the tiny "friends of the library" bookstore of the Newport Beach Central Library, is sure to delight. I would come from many a mile just to come here for steals of deals.
What's really worth noting here is the availibility of best selling and new hardback books in very good condition. For example, one time I got a hardback of The Da Vinci Code, for just $2 here. There were no torn pages or damaged cover- perfectly good used book. Comparably, during the time, I could have bought the same title at Barnes and Noble (in nearby Fashion Island) for $30! You know, those bookish richies of newport take good care of the books and generously donate when finished with them.

Most of what you will found here is a buck or two. There are many 2 for $1 deals within genres. the highest priced items are special/rare collections, that could go for $30 +)

All major typical genres found at a full library are available within the book store, including new and older fiction (classics, romances, etc), nonfiction (bios, political books, photography), mass market and childrens books. There is also a limited sections of DVDs, videos and cds.

There are periodic monster book sales that draws hundreds. Check the library's website calendar for times of these special sales.

What to buy: hardback/ soft cover fiction

big section of travel books, non-fiction , literary classics and poetry section, cooking books, etc

What to pay: many books just $1; 2 for 1 deals throughout the store

Address: 1000 Avocado Ave, Newport Beach, CA 92660

Directions: Corona del Mar area, near Avocado/PCH intersection and steps away from (up the hill from) Bristol Farms market
