Berkeley’s Dark Carnival Book Store is hidden on a small commercial strip on Claremont Avenue. Inside it’s a sci-fi and fantasy lover’s dream. The owner for 37 years, Jack Rems, guesses that the store houses 25,000 books, lining the walls, staircases, and floor of the small store. KALW’s Dora Finklestein stopped by Dark Carnival and got a tour.
On the today's Your Call, we’ll ask Green Apple Books, Kevin Hunsanger, and Booksmith’s, Christin Evans, to share their recommendations for the best books of the year. Do you have friends or family you’d love to give a book to if only you had a recommendation? What’s your book gift idea and what are you reading? It's Your Call with Rose Aguilar, and you.
