  1. There are not words that can express how I feel about how the people in the Bay Area who support a local bookstore. I will always purchase at Keplers for every book that I need from today and onward. I am glad that Kepler’s lights are on!!!

    Thank you, Menlo Park and the Bay Area

  2. I tried calling Kepler’s again today to sign up for a membership, and their phone mailbox is full.

  3. I was away for a family occasion, so missed the big opening day. I’m home now, and I expect to be in the store Monday morning looking for books (along with my sister, another avid reader). I’m so happy to be able to take my sister (from Denver) to Kepler’s — and Caffe Borrone! Thanks to everyone who helped make this happen. –Scottie

  4. Does anyone know how many books did Keplers sell on the grand re-opening day? Judging from the length of the lines at the registers, it must be at least several thousand…

  5. There was a moment at the reopening when I knew Kepler’s was “back.” I looked up into the
    happy crowd outside the door and saw a bearded gentleman wearing a T-shirt that said,
    “That was Zen. This is Tao.” How much more “Kepler’s” can you be?
