This bookstore is not a dark drab spot to be dragged into- it is open, friendly and bright! There is genres for all preferences and ages by independent published authors. It is definitely worth checking out.

Imagine the musty, narrow floor to ceiling shelves crammed with volumes of books impossible to see but for their spines. Now, open your eyes to the cover-out racks of colorful, fully visible books. It's bright, and there's room to wander around, guided by your curiosity...More

Although I live in Sarasota, I do visit Fort Myers a few times a year. One of my "must stops" is P J Boox Bookstore at Reflection Lakes. This unique bookstore is colorful, friendly, and filled with books not found on Amazon or other bookstores....More

P J Boox was a refreshing find on my vacation to Fort Myers. This bookstore is a refreshing change from the typical bookstore. You actually see the covers of the books instead of just the spines. All the books are self published/small press published and...More

Great shop. Novel selection of undiscovered stories and all books are cover facing out which I found easy to navigate. Especially enjoyed that I wasn't looking at the exact same 20 books that the big box stores are pushing on everyone as "must reads."
