Blue Kettle Books is a local, independent, family-owned independent mobile bookstore based in Seattle, Washington.
Our bookmobile was built out of a 2014 shuttle bus, and the name "Blue Kettle" was inspired by the sight of a pretty, soothing tea kettle alongside a stack of weathered novels.
What sets us apart from a big-box bookstore is our super-curated selection packed into a small-footprint space, with books cleverly categorized in a way that's accessible and relatable. Along with the best books, we proudly sell bookish gifts emphasizing local and diverse talent.
