In searching for  a good book to read, San Jose tea drinkers can choose from e-books and downloadable digital files for the Kindle, Nook and other brands of e-Readers that are fairly popular in the Bay Area.  Many residents prefer an actual book to the digital versions, however, so while various local bookstores are closing (multiple Borders bookstores will close in the South Bay in 2011), there are several that are doing well enough to carry a good variety of books, including tea books.  Here are some Santa Clara Valley bookstores that advertise tea books on their websites:

Often, local libraries will have tea books in the cooking and recipes section, as well as the lifestyle sections, so you can enjoy your vacation reading without spending a lot of money or taking up permanent space in your home or your computer with physical or digital books.  There are so many great tea books out there, novels, recipe books, history books, etiquette books, and even poetry!
