Fishing for Fiction

Move over, big box bookstore. Hooked on Books is Islamorada's beloved independent bookstore, featuring shelf-after-shelf of books about the Florida Keys and its history, fishing, diving, flora and fauna, maps and more. You'll find a nice selection of fiction and non-fiction by Florida Keys authors from Hemingway on up. A children's section is stocked with titles for all ages, from toddlers to teens. And if your current beach read isn't the page turner you'd hoped for, you can browse through a wide selection of current best-sellers. On Saturday, April 5, the store welcomes Key West mystery writers for one of its popular "Meet The Authors" events. Join well-read locals and guests of Islamorada hotels to meet and mingle.

Address: 81.9 Overseas Highway, Islamorada
