Island Book Shop is owned and operated by Jenny Hamm. Jenny graduated from UNCW with a degree in Creative Writing. Her love for literature and the written word, lead her to fulfill a long-awaited dream of opening a book store. In 2010, she opened the doors of Island Book Shop, which is currently the only operating book store on Pleasure Island, and has become a favorite among the locals and tourists alike.  “I'm a big believer in the importance of the written word. I love having an opportunity to combine that passion with an equally valuable opportunity to interact with my customers on a personal level that I feel you only get with small businesses. When I opened the shop I expected my favorite part to be working with the books, but I've come to realize that my favorite part of this job is easily getting to meet my fellow book-people.”
The Island Book Shop also offers business center services for those who need them.  They can handle any of your fax and copy services.  Fast, convenient, and cheap the Island Book Shop can help you get those important papers handled without stress.  They even have internet access available.  If you have found yourself in the area and in immediate need of such business services, please stop by the Island Book Shop.
